Senior Instructors (SI)

Senior Instructors or SIs generally have at least one year of experience in teaching outdoor pursuits, and a qualification such as an entry level UKCC BCU canoe award, Mountain Leader training or assessment, the SPA, or perhaps the Moorland Leader award. It is not unheard of to talk your way into an SI role even if you have little practical experience - as long as you have the qualifications and some great transferable skills, you may be able to convince the employer that you are the right candidate for the job. Most centres will try to recruit from within, so the best way to become an SI is to work for a company as an instructor and get promoted. Sometimes, however, adventure activity centres will find it necessary to recruit their senior or management staff externally and those are the adverts you will find above.

Chief Instructors

Chief Instructors will certinaly need to have experience of teaching outdoor pursuits and are usually required to have something like the ML award, SPA or a UKCC level 2 or higher. As the chief instructor may be called upon to help run the centre, some management experience will certainly boost your chances of getting the job.

Centre Managers

As well as working your way up the ranks as an instructor, you will likely be fully qualified in one of the main activities, whether that is water or land based or both. Your job as an activity centre manager will involve some activity teaching and plenty of staff training. You will be expected to be well versed in the ins and outs of running a centre, including issues such as health and safety, certification and insurance.
