Josh Robinson: Activity’s Manager: Active Outdoor Pursuits
5 Month Winter Course 2012
Why Did you Choose Active to do your instructor training course?
I liked the sound of the international trips and the Highlands seemed like the best place in the UK to get the real mountain feel. I looked at other companies but they didn’t seem to find the same variety of activities that Active offered.
What was your experience of the ITC course in terms of content, delivery, course outcomes achieved etc.
I had a great time while building up the skills and understanding to start a career in the outdoor industry. The course is great at not only developing hard skills but also instructional skills and a full understanding of job prospects and how much further you could take qualifications.
Where are you now in your outdoor career?
I am the Activities Manager at Active having come through their Instructor development scheme.
Did the course help you find a career in the outdoors?
What would you say to future candidates looking at a career in the outdoors?
If you are serious about a career in the outdoors and want to be in an enthusiastic, diverse and driven learning environment while also seeing new parts of the world, then this is the course for you.
