North Yorkshire Outdoor Education Service operates three Centres across the North East of England. It is our policy to ensure that all courses are staffed with appropriately qualified outdoor professionals. The Service currently employs 26 full time teaching staff and 8 trainee staff, as well as having access to a number of supply staff.
We pride ourselves in having a very high level of staffing expertise available across the Service. We promote an environment of continuous training and development for all staff, both permanent and temporary. We also insist on site-specific familiarisation for everyone.
Further information can be obtained from the centre concerned, if required, on booking your Course.
The Centres offer a year's placement to those interested. Please ask for details of schemes for Voluntary Instructors.
East Barnby VI Scheme is now closed for 2010-2011.
The intake for September 2011 will be recruited in Spring 2011.
