ATE runs summer camps for children in the UK aged 8-16. Every year we run a training course for new volunteers to train as Monitors. By attending the seven-day residential course, you will be provided with the resources and skills required to successfully lead a group of children on a Superweek.
The training includes practical sessions, lectures, interactive workshops and discussions. You will learn about ATE’s principles and aims, how we run activities, the ways we make sure our holidays are safe, and how we work with children.
The course is intensive and challenging, but also lots of fun; you’ll spend the week getting to know the other volunteers, playing new games, and laughing at least three times an hour.
Each Monitor Training Course is led by one of our Lead Instructors, a senior member of our staff body. They are assisted by a selection of experienced staff members, including Monitors, Assistant Directors and Directors. All of our instructors have completed the Monitor Training Course themselves, and gone on to work on multiple Superweeks.
The training course will take place near Ludlow in Shropshire, but is open to applicants from across the UK.
