“The expert level of tuition we received on the Outdoor Education Course gave me the confidence to challenge everything head on and I was always encouraged to reach my full potential. Learning from experienced tutors who have worked at the top level in the outdoor industry gave me the confidence to open my own adventure centre just 12months after completing the course. The advice I received during this time was invaluable and helped my business become what it is.”
