Expert, Multinational Team of Instructors
Becoming an Outward Bound instructor is a major challenge in itself. The professional outdoor practitioner who leads your programme has qualified as an instructor by completing a 14 days Odyssey Course, 64 days of trainings and assessments and 22 days on-the-job training totally 100 days of intensive training. The training includes group management, facilitation, education methodology, as well as training in technical skills, risk management, and emergency response for all Outward Bound courses. They also receive regular ongoing training locally and internationally. Our instructors come from a range of different cultures and backgrounds, and are chosen as much for their ability to lead and instruct people, as they are for their language abilities, interpersonal and technicalskills. Each instructor has passed a Police Screening Clearance and maintains qualifications in wilderness first aid and lifesaving.
