Summary

This Foundation Diploma is equivalent in size to 1.5 A Levels over 1 year. The qualification is mapped to the Outdoor Activities Instructor Apprenticeship Standard, preparing learners for a range of job roles. Learners taking this qualification will study eight mandatory units: • Unit A: Careers in the Sport and Active Leisure industry • Unit B: Health, Well-being and Sport • Unit C4: Personal Skills Development in Outdoor Activities • Unit D4: Applied Leadership and Instructing in Outdoor Activity • Unit 24: Health and Safety Factors in Outdoor Learning • Unit 25: Outdoor Activity Provision From these units, learners will gain the underpinning knowledge, skills and behaviour needed to work as an outdoor activities instructor so that they can work independently in outdoor pursuit centres or as a freelance instructor.

What do I need to join?

Learners will require five GCSEs at grade 4 or above, including English, Maths and Science.

How will I know how I am doing?

A variety of assessment methods will be used to measure your progress from your start point and against your expected outcomes and target grade. These may include practical tasks and assessments, written assignments, performance reviews, presentations and discussions. Progress will be discussed with your tutor and other delivery staff on the programme.

Maths & English

As part of the ethos of upskilling our learners, opportunities to improve their maths and English will be identified in lessons and throughout the course.

Employability

We aim to provide you with the skills required to be able to progress into further study and training or employment upon completion of your programme of study. Key attributes required by employers are that individuals be enthusiastic, motivated, presentable (in some instances in company uniform), organised, articulate, able to think 'outside the box', business-like and enterprising, and that they have a 'can-do' attitude. We work on all these areas throughout the duration of your programme of study, and your tutor(s) will provide feedback on progress made, as well as areas for development.

Work Experience

As part of your overall programme of study, learners will be required to undertake a period of work placement related to the field of employment they wish to enter. Our Work Placement Team will assist learners in gaining a placement and ensure that you are on track to achieve, whilst liaising with your course tutors to ensure that the opportunity to practice necessary employability skills is available at college.

What can I do next?

Learners who successfully complete the programme can either gain an apprenticeship, enter the industry or continue with their studies through to Level 3, year 2 (Level 3 Extended Diploma in Outdoor Activity Leadership). Following on from successful completion of year 2, learners may be eligible to progress into higher education.
