As part of the Professional Courses at Reaseheath Adventure Sports 6 students passed their Climbing Wall Award assessment (CWA). Having already completed the two day training and been developing their group work skills it was a nervous day for the successful candidates, many of whom have gained work in Climbing Walls on the strength of their CWA.
Simon Wells, who co-ordinates the Professional Program said, “We try to keep assessments as calm and relaxed as possible. Candidates bring enough stress of their own, even though all 6 candidates were strong and easily meet the CWA standard they all went away having learnt a little bit more about teaching climbing.”
“Unusually the group was all current Reaseheath students, normally we have a few former students and members of the public. We used Awesome Walls, Stockport for the assessment, with six of our students using the colleges 12m high lead wall would have been limiting their chance to show off their skills.”
