Learners will gain the underpinning knowledge, skills and behaviours required for working in the sports industry. They will develop their leadership and instructing skills so that they can work independently as an outdoor activities instructor, ensuring safe and effective leadership for groups of people taking part in different outdoor activities. Learners will also gain nationally recognised, outdoor specific coaching qualifications and valuable work experience.
LEAD Education will provide a unique balance of practical and theoretical based learning where groups are taught and assessed through classroom lectures, practical sports, group discussions and portfolio/assignment work (no exams on this programme).
As well as gaining the core BTEC qualification learners will have the opportunity to participate in residential trips and adventurous expeditions. Such activities could include time spent in the Lake District, Peak District, Northumberland and Scotland. Other trips may include mountaineering in Morocco or rock climbing/bouldering in France.
Our aim is to manage and develop the next generation of young, keen sports leaders and outdoor adventure instructors. Past learners have secured high level Apprenticeships in the UK and aboard, full time employment and university placements. Check out the LEAD Education case studies page to see what past students have been up to having gained this specialist qualification.
