Apprenticeships and Professional Standards

You may have picked up that IOL are working in partnership with a group of employers to develop new apprenticeships for the outdoors.  This involves identifying sufficiently generic job roles in outdoor learning provision and what we would need a competent person to be able to do in that role, as well as deciding how to assess they are competent.  As the relatively recent call from Westminster to develop such ‘trailblazer apprenticeships’ coincides with the need for IOL’s professional accreditations to go through a review, the employer’s group and IOL have decided to ensure the two pieces of work inform each other.  The employer’s group has recently received the go ahead from the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills to start work on the first of the apprenticeship levels.

National Citizens Service

I had the privilege this week of working with an NCS group for a day at the end of their first week of outdoor adventurous activity.  We were out on the hill and it was particularly wet!  The day was a fantastic reminder of why taking groups of people in the outdoors and facilitating their ownership of a challenging time together is such a worthwhile undertaking.  You've heard it all before so I won't go into that piece about helping groups have their own adventure.....though it is one of the most rewarding things I do.
