Today Gwilym has been at Bridgwater YMCA running some staff training and signing off a new instructor for their climbing wall.
Last week, we supplied 8 instructors to support Bridgwater College with their apprentice residential programme in South Wales, 42 students, loads of equipment and minibuses arrived at the accommodation near Abergavenny for some team building and route planning before a week of climbing, biking and an overnight expedition. All had a great time and having just finished sorting all the kit and equipment, we start again on Monday for round 2 with the next group.
Gwilym and Mark have been running a Single Pitch Award Training course. They spent the day at Goblin Combe Car Park crag before going to Redpoint for the evening. Lots covered today in relation to Top and Bottom roping, Problem Solving and Abseils. Although a chilly start it soon warmed up and some of the hardier candidates were down to short sleeves
Today Gwilym was working with staff from Wellington School training them to use their climbing wall at the end of their sports hall. They looked at both technical and coaching issues and the school now has 4 more staff who can run climbing sessions
If your school or college needs staff training then please get in touch firstname.lastname@example.org
Today Gwilym was at one of the local schools that we work with training some new staff for their climbing wall. A few spots of rain but nothing major allowed them to maximise the practical time. It was a bit cold though. Well done to the 4 staff who attended today
