2 MODERN APPRENTICES

We have been offering modern apprenticeships in conjunction with Duchy College for the last couple of years.  We have good links with the college and are able to offer a work placement as well as support for the Sport and Recreation Activity leadership NVQ level 2.  This is a great way into the outdoor industry giving the all important practical experience as well as work based learning, so applicants will finish with a seasons experience in an outdoor centre along with national governing body awards.  Importantly modern apprentices are treated as a member of the activity team and will be expected to form part of the instructing team first as an assistant and then taking a leading role on certain activities. There will be an initial training period as well as ongoing training throughout the season, personal development does also depend on the individual as they will be expected to practice in their own time.Training wage dependent on age and experience
