Welcome to the Outdoor Partnership — Darllenwch yn Cymraeg

Socialise with us



​Arthog Outdoor Education Centre is based on the North-West coast of Wales, in the Snowdonia National Park. We are owned by Telford & Wrekin Council.

Assistant Instructor Scheme - Arthog

The Centre offers a twelve month placement, to young people who want to begin a career in the outdoor industry.

This will be of interest to people in the 20-25 age range. 

They will have prior experience in outdoor education, and can demonstrate a high level of commitment and motivation for working in this field. 

Competition for places on the scheme is high, but if you are a person with energy, enthusiasm and a passion for the outdoors, we’d like to hear from you.

Typically Assistant Instructors are people who have finished college or university courses, who are looking to build on their practical experience. 

Training Opportunities

During the year, Assistant Instructors will gain a huge amount of experience of working in a very successful and popular outdoor education centre, and will further their experience and qualifications in outdoor adventure leadership.

They will work alongside our highly qualified, professional staff, who will structure their responsibility with the group according to their development needs.

We will provide the opportunity for you to attend courses, where relevant, and dependent upon your experience. This could be:

  • SPA Training and/or Assessment         
  • BCU Star Awards 1-3         
  • UKCC Level 1 Coach         
  • ML Summer Training and/or Assessment         
  • Mountain First Aid

Arthog will provide full board and lodging, and pay you £50 per week, in return for assistance in the running of the Centre.

Applications will be accepted up to 3rd February 2014.

Short-listed candidates will be invited to an assessment weekend at the Centre.

Successful candidates will then be offered a place, and advised of a starting date - this will be between the July and October 2014.
