    This is an accelerated, practical immersion program, which offers a unique pathway from training to employment in the outdoor industry. It offers an unparalleled combination of training, qualifications and mentored transition from practitioner, to leader, and then to instructor, with quality industry experience. The true zero to hero program, for those with the determination, drive and aptitude to explore, grow and succeed.

    This training program is for high school leavers and university graduates who are seeking a rewarding gap year that will provide skills and experience that will transfer powerfully into their future study or career success.  


    Alternatively, those seeking preparation and entry into the Outdoor Education, Adventure Guiding, Advanced Qualifications such as Mountain Guiding or Tourism have hit the holy grail of academic, practical and experience based training.


    Career break? Then you are one of the large proportion of participants we see every year, and promise this will be a great fit for you. We offer a fantastic way to take that time out, reset, rediscover yourself, and develop in ways you hoped you would, but didn't know how.
