Job Title: Outdoor Activities Instructor, Blackwell Adventure

“I knew I wanted a career in outdoor sports management and felt that an adventure sports diploma combined well with a degree in business and events management. 

“I gained instructor’s qualifications alongside my diploma while my degree gave me a good understanding of marketing and finance, all of which are very applicable.   

“My courses, plus my experience of organising and running outdoor activities both at college and as a scout leader, prepared me to enter the sector. I now have a job which I enjoy and which offers lots of opportunities.”
