Intensive Development Course...

In a short amount of time, this course runs you through some of the most important Outdoor qualifications you need to start your career in the Outdoor Sector 

For many years now the Intensive Development Course (IDC) has been in exsitence in many shapes and forms within the Outdoor Sector; in-fact many people who work in the outdoors have been through this route.
Escape Outdoors has years of experience in training coaches and leaders and have noticed that the current courses are expensive, can mean long-term commitment and focus on the 'higher' qualifications.
That's why we have designed this course to suit people who work in the lowland areas and also offers great entry qualifications if you plan to head on to those 'higher' awards in the future.

The course will run throughout the week days and runs for 5 1/2 weeks; we give you a break at the weekend to recoup, however, it is worth getting out and gaining even more experience!

The course will be running from 6th February 2017 so that you are set and ready for the summer.
We will also be running it during the Summer 2017 for those who can fit it in to your Summer holiday times!

This course is based within West Sussex- alhtough we will be based at a centre we will be using area of the South Downs, Downs Link, North Downs and the fantastic coastline.
