The Level 3 Outdoor Activity Instructor is a 12 to an 18-month apprenticeship where apprentices will learn to run safe and enjoyable activity sessions. Taking on an apprentice in this role is aimed at organisations seeking individuals to supervise and guide children and adults in activities and pastimes. Typical job titles may include Multi-Activity Leader, Environmental Education Tutor, Activity Instructor, Ranger, and National Park Guide.
Apprentices will obtain knowledge in planning and organising several outdoor activities, in addition to supporting participants to achieve set outcomes and hand over participants, return resources and equipment, and log any issues.
We have extensive experience working in the sports sector alongside knowledgeable and experienced tutors who teach this standard. Learning modules are mainly delivered at an employer’s workplace or another suitable venue and often as a group. Apprentices are given resources to support them through the apprenticeship and additional e-learning modules are included in the delivery plan to enhance a learner’s knowledge and understanding.
Apprentices must be employed for the duration of the apprenticeship and work at least 30 hours per week for their employer with 20 per cent of their time allocated to ‘off the job’ training. The apprentices will be assessed via an end point assessment which includes a practical coaching observation, a presentation with questions and answers and a panel interview to ensure they have gained the required knowledge, skills and behaviours to achieve the community activator coach standard.
