Course summary

Adventure education is the true foundation stone of the modern adventure sector and has become a huge and diverse area of employment that plays a vital role in our society. As an educator in this field, you will be responsible for developing future generations of people, and giving them memories and experiences that will last a lifetime. You will need to be able to provide safe and authentic adventurous experiences, while helping create important learning that may range from the very practical to the reflective, as well as providing links to the school curriculum. The BA (Hons) Adventure Education* will prepare you for an exciting and satisfying career as an educator and professional adventure practitioner. The programme will develop your knowledge and professional skills to plan, prepare and lead adventure education activities in potentially challenging and wild places. The skills and awareness of the professional adventure practitioner are essential to ensure that you are ready to lead in a wide range of demanding or remote environments. The course is built on a common framework of 'adventure' modules that it shares with our other programmes - Adventure Tourism Management, Adventure Performance and Coaching and Marine and Coastal Tourism.
