Course for Adventure Related Vocational Educators 2014

The third year of Landon Carver’s Course for Adventure Related Vocational Educators (CARVE) saw another 25 outdoor, adventure and activity instructors head to the Chamonix Valley at the foot of Mont Blanc to complete a two week work placement with UCPA (Union des Centres Sportifs de Plein Air) in one of their ski/snowboarding centres.

During the placement, the participants experienced the French approach to delivering outdoor education. Candidates experienced all aspects of work in the French ski centres as they shadowed UCPA instructors and sat in on briefings as well as taking on a variety of tasks involved with the running of a UCPA centre.
