What is an Outdoor Activity Apprenticeship?
If a 9-5 office job and sitting behind a desk all day is just not your thing, this apprenticeship could be just the thing you’re looking for! As experts in the outdoor activity industry, JCA will give you the tools to climb your way to the top and achieve industry recognised qualifications – a fantastic way to build your CV and progress within the outdoor industry! The apprenticeship will focus on the practical elements of the instructor role and support with any theory based learning.

Our activity instructors are the superstars of JCA, the kids will look up to you and see you as their hero – you’ll make sure that they’re safe and having an amazing time during their adventure holiday!

What will I be doing?
With JCA no two days will look the same – we have over 40 activities & you will be trained in delivering all of these!  We have a range of outdoor and indoor activities and once your group arrives on-site, you are their instructor for the whole of their stay!

You’ll be the leader of the pack for activities such as fencing and archery in the sunshine, final shoot out at the laser quest and helping guests overcome their fears on the abseiling tower and aerial trek high above the trees! Your top priority will be keeping your pack safe and making sure everyone has the time of their life.

Over the course of 13 months, we’ll give you all the training, equipment and confidence needed in this role – so no previous experience required!

At the end of the Apprenticeship, you will achieve an industry recognised level 3 qualification in Outdoor Activity Leadership. And if that wasn’t enough, you’ll also have the chance to gain further external qualifications including:

  • Fencing Leader
  • FSRT & Paddle Sports instructor
  • GB Orienteering
  • GB Archery
  • First Aid 
  • NPLQ

We offer our apprentices the chance to live on site, so no boring commute to work! You’ll live and breathe what it means to be an Activity Instructor.  You will make friends for life and tonnes of unforgettable memories whilst completing your apprenticeship!

The place you’ll call home is Condover Hall, our flagship centre in Shrewsbury, Shropshire. Set in the stunning Shropshire countryside and just a stones throw from a lively town with lots to do.

You will have the opportunity to branch out and experience a different type of adventure at one of our other seasonal centres across the UK once you have completed your Apprenticeship.
