This is a demanding role that requires the organisation and administration of Adventure Training within the School’s busy extra-curricular programme.

We are looking for someone who is passionate about adventure, who has a love of the outdoors and who wishes to share that passion with enthusiastic and energetic young people.

The role is offered initially on a fixed-term basis for one or two years, from September 2020.

The successful applicant should have some basic qualifications in any of these
disciplines: Climbing (SPA or CWA), Kayaking/Canoeing (Level 1 Coach), Sailing
(DSI), and mountain walking (Mountain Leader Training), as well as experience
of working with groups of young people. The College may be able to help with
relevant Professional Development and thus further qualifications.
