I have always believed that if you can find and retain the right staff then the success of our events are guaranteed. The feedback from our clients certainly supports this view.
We use both full time and professional freelance instructors to help us deliver high quality outdoor programmes with each member of staff being carefully selected for their specialities, experiences and qualifications. You can be confident of receiving enthusiastic, high quality instruction during all of our events.
I am very pleased to introduce some of our contracted staff.
