About The PaddleSport Training

Here at Land & Wave, we’re a close-knit bunch of both family and friends, so you’ll be welcomed with open arms when you train with us.

7 Weeks | 10 Qualifications

The 10 National Governing Body qualifications have been carefully selected to give you the perfect mix of experience and knowledge to be able to get your first job in the outdoor industry.

Every day of the course is an incredible adventure. You’ll be exploring new locations along the Jurassic Coast as well as a week-long trip to Dartmoor to experience white water paddling.

We understand it’s a significant investment of your time and money to upskill, so to make sure you have the best success in getting a job we run evening seminars to really maximise your employment success.

Our evening workshops consist of CV writing, interview prep, an Outdoor Careers Fair and inspirational speakers.

Every Monday morning we also run a team energiser which will teach you much needed filler and enrichment games to help entertain your future clients. 

We’ve been successfully training outdoor instructors for the last 10 years with over 220 graduates who now work in amazing outdoor jobs across the world.
