Staff training at Edinburgh Academy

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

After an adventure over west last week I made for Edinburgh to deliver two days of site Specific training for the PE Outdoor Education and Sports Centre staff.  The main focus was safe, positive and effective delivery of climbing sessions on their new climbing wall.  Since they all have lots of previous experience with groups and other sports coaching; the team soaked up the information and had a lot of fun in the process.

The training is designed to enable the staff team to work towards and assessment so that they can run groups on site which will help with them working towards their Climbing Wall Award.  Well done all and thanks for being so involved and psyched!
