Student Experiences

“As a mature student and coming from an office based working life, I was looking for a new career and education that was close to my heart and actually meant something to me. With our experienced and inspiring teachers and instructors, I discovered a place where learning was fun, experiential and exciting at the same time. The 2 years gave me all the connections and qualification that I needed to work in the industry. Furthermore, this course was the first step into a world of people that are down to earth, enthusiastic, passionate and connected with life, nature and and their surroundings. Building on this great experiences, I continued my studies in an Outdoor Learning Degree in Tralee.” (Level 7)

“My time on the Kinsale Outdoor Education Instructor Training Course was a great learning experience, brilliant fun and I finished with qualifications which were essential to furthering my career in the outdoor adventure industry. Thanks to the skills and experience I gained, I quickly got a fulltime job setting up and running a SOLAS (formerly FAS) course in Outdoor Recreation. The Kinsale course is run by enthusiastic, experienced instructors and I would highly recommend it to anyone thinking of a career in this area.”
