Kent DofE – A Career In the Outdoors Residential

DofE Gold Residential based at The Kent Mountain Centre in Llanberis, North Wales.

This residential will focus on Outdoor Education as a potential future career.

The opportunity will include 4 full multi-activity days taking advantage of the incredible environments around North Wales. During these sessions we will discuss the role of the outdoor educator, differentiation, group and risk management skills, equipment and its maintenance, safety, the weather and its effects on the ‘classroom’ we teach in and the decisions we make as outdoor leaders. All whilst actually participating in the outdoor activities.

We will provide both practical and theoretical evening sessions focussing on career pathways, the way in to teaching outdoor education and team leadership; and expect a nice relaxed social evening one evening too.

There will also be an opportunity to gain the DofE Expedition Supervisor Qualification during the week.

Accommodation in shared simple and comfortable bunk style accommodation is provided as well as all food whilst at KMC.

No experience necessary as the course will be tailored to suit all, although expect to participate in outdoor and adventurous activities whatever the weather !!
