Channel Training is a private training company based in arguably one of the finest outdoor destinations in the UK, Exmoor and the Bristol Channel. Our philosophy drives everything we do. We believe that every young person has a right to adventure and play outdoors throughout their lives. It’s what makes us tick, makes us feel alive, makes us work together and makes us happy. This happens when the confidence and expertise exists in communities to take young people outdoors and let them explore, play and take risks.
We aim to develop and support excellence in the industry through expert delivery, training and professional development. We provide high quality professional and personal development courses as well as clear pathways into employment through apprenticeships and instructor training courses. Many of our learners work in residential outdoor centres – a real passion for us is to support the high-quality instruction of children at these hugely valuable facilities.
We love seeing people achieve. In everything we do we work really hard to make ourselves as redundant as possible. Not great business you might think, but developing a person’s independence in the activity they enjoy is where genuine job satisfaction lies. Whether it’s developing someone’s open water swimming confidence and awareness to someone taking their first paddle strokes on a SUP, we just love being part of that journey.
