Mountain Biking

Mountain Biking

Mountain Biking is a hugely popular sport and the level of interest has not showed any signs of slowing since the initial boom in the early 1990s. With so many people getting involved, it is hardly surprising to find instructor opportunities available for those people wishing to get involved beyond the purely personal level. So how do you get the right qualifications that will allow you to teach other people? And should you go the MIAS route or the MBLA route? We look at everything you need to consider, and speak to some industry insiders for a low-down on each qualification.

Apprenticeships

Apprenticeships

With unemployment at a dizzying high and the real pressure on school and college leavers, and graduates, beginning a career in outdoor education is often a great way to avoid the dole queue. The government want to get young people into training, and activity and adventure centres need young people to help teach their visitors. This perfect match is often supported by apprenticeship schemes which act as a fantastic stepping stone towards a career in the industry.
