First degree programme combined with the new Level 5 Outdoor Learning Specialist Higher Apprenticeship

FdSc Outdoor Leadership and Outdoor Learning Specialist Higher Apprenticeships Standard

University Centre South Devon is offering the new Level 5 Higher Apprenticeship Outdoor Learning Specialist standard. There is also a unique offering to undertake a FdSc Outdoor Leadership (foundation degree) alongside the Outdoor Learning Specialist Higher Apprenticeship standard.

In the first year of study, students develop the knowledge and leadership skills to design and implement a progressive outdoor learning programme. In the second year, students will continue to develop these planning and implementation skills in relation to group formation and the responsibilities their role requires on working in remote environments. Students can combine work and study to develop the knowledge skills and behaviours to push the sector forward.

Based in beautiful Devon, this is achieved by utilising the existing outstanding natural habitat of the English Riviera (designated as a UNESCO Global GeoPark), Dartmoor National Park and the South West Coastline. This programme can be delivered both face-to-face and nationwide, through remote learning. This new opportunity opens doors for full-time employees at an apprentice wage, or for existing employees to upskill. Please contact to discuss all options available to you.
