Sport and Outdoor Education

  • Students

    This course gives you the opportunity to learn about the Outdoor Adventure industry and develop vital skills which will help you towards developing a career pathway in this sector.

    The Outdoor activity Industry is one of the fastest growing sectors of employment in the UK, with more and more people wanting to experience Outdoor activities for personal, social and group development. The Level 1 in Outdoor Activity Leadership will allow you to develop skills in Outdoor Activities through classroom and practical based sessions. Based at the Royal Forest of Dean campus the course will offer a real life introduction to many great local locations for Outdoor Adventure Sports including the Forest of Dean, the Brecon Beacons and the River Wye. The course will teach you the importance of health & safety whilst delivering Outdoor Activities and how planning can create a fun, productive and exciting experience for clients. All these vital skills will help students develop a career pathway for the Outdoor Industry. A series of trips has been arranged throughout the course and these are designed to enhance your learning. It is important to attend all trips as they make up part of your final mark. You will be informed of fees at the beginning of the course.

At Gloucestershire College we want students to develop their English and maths skills so that they achieve their learning goals and future career aims. For this reason all full-time students who have not achieved grade A* to C English language or maths GCSE will study these subjects as part of their course.
