Plas y Brenin Instructor Scheme 2016
The purpose of the Instructor Scheme is to provide good quality training, followed by a season of instructional work on a variety of National Centre courses where you will receive supervision and guidance. This will provide a good grounding for work in outdoor instruction, coaching teaching or guiding.
The minimum pre-requirements for the scheme are that you hold a Summer ML Award and are registered with the MTUK for the Mountaineering Instructor Scheme and/or Aspirant Level 5 Coach / UKCC Level 3. Other outdoor qualifications and skills will be an advantage, in particular mountain bike leadership.
You need to be a minimum of 21 years of age and have held a full UK drivers licence for at least two years (D1 category is very desirable) in order to comply with our minibus driving restrictions.
This scheme has been used as a successful springboard for many Instructors who have moved into an outdoor career.
If you would like to apply, please complete and return the application form to firstname.lastname@example.org, feel free to provide any additional information that you think is relevant. Please ensure that you include an email address on your application form as all correspondence will be via email.
The closing date for applications will be Monday 12th October 2015.
Successful applicants will be invited to an interview on Thursday 22nd October 2015.
