Course or workshop description

My courses aim to give candidates as much quality learning as possible. As a passionate climber myself, I've also taught others for 14 years, and really enjoy enabling others to progress in their work and personal climbing life. Courses are female led, and gender inclusive. There will be lots of open discussions in a supportive environment, and I always aim to make everyone feel welcome, and provide an atmosphere that gets the absolute best out of people. You'll be taken through the key elements of becoming a safe and highly skilled Rock Climbing Instructor, and have lots of opportunity to practise throughout the course. We'll look at teaching and developing others as well as being a safe instructor, and you'll leave with a clear action plan and feedback moving forward. We'll meet indoors on the first morning of the course for an informal chat about how the course will run, and then use single pitch crags around the north Lakes, and visit a climbing wall for the indoor element. Car shares can arranged, or pick ups from Keswick if you are arriving by public transport. Cost includes climbing wall entry for the indoor element. Course content will include: Using equipment, personal climbing skills, indoor climbing sessions, developing others, group management, safe ropework, managing incidents and the climbing environment. Before booking this course you will need: - to have registered for the RCI scheme with Mountain Training Before attending the course you must have: - led 15 routes which must be graded rock climbs with traditional protection. - led 15 routes at a climbing wall. - led 5 routes which must be outdoor bolt protected sport climbs.
