The Outdoor

Welcome to
Channel Training

Channel Training has been at the forefront of Apprenticeship development in the outdoor learning sector since 2012. We believe that Apprenticeships are an incredibly powerful tool to attract and develop diverse talent in outdoor learning and to provide cost-effective solutions for employers in our sector. Our staff have decades of experience in the delivery of Apprenticeships that meet the needs of outdoor centres, schools, adventurous activity and recreation providers and outdoor learning charities, social enterprises and voluntary organisations.

We aim to ease the pains of recruiting and training new staff and of developing and retaining existing staff. The current recruitment crisis in our sector brings fresh challenge for us all and Channel Training is here to provide no-nonsense, trusted solutions for those who deliver outdoor learning in our society.

Recruit Apprentices

We work with you to build a cost-effective staffing and training model that works for your organisation. As a specialist provider there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach and we work hard to understand your needs and design the programmes with you.

Apprenticeship Vacancies

So you’ve always liked the idea of working as an outdoor instructor – and who would blame you? We all felt like that – and still do – for good reason. It’s the best job in the world. You get to work with passionate, bright people in some of the UK’s most stunning places. You are constantly challenged with new situations and opportunities.
