Fantastic opportunity to gain a wide range of outdoor qualifications in the unique setting of the Isle of Man!

Our centre has an excellent record and our training programme is one of the best in the Outdoor Industry.

Some people come on our scheme as an alternative to attending a college course. The advantage of our scheme is that you will gain soft and hard skills as you will be actively involved in outdoor activities throughout the season.

The scheme balances training with voluntary work. During the first part of the season - March to the end of April - you will undergo a considerable amount of training opportunities including kayaking, mountain biking.

From May onwards you will be actively involved in delivering outdoor activity sessions to groups of young people and adults using our centre. This period allows you to gain experience and develop your skills ready to progress your national governing body awards.

During late season we consolidate these awards and where appropriate complete the assessments required.


Individuals must be at least 18 years old as most governing bodies recognise this as the minimum age for someone to take charge of young people.

Throughout the time with us opportunity will be made for you to attend and complete a multitude of outdoor, activity and watersports courses at our expense.

You will assist qualified instructors on delivery of activity sessions this enables you to train and gain logged hours towards coaching awards and where/when qualified you will deliver activity sessions yourself with remote supervision to a basic level within standard operational procedures.
