We have undertaken a range of external accreditation processes in support of our mission of…
“Using outdoor experiences, special places and adventures to inspire real learning, discovery and development.”
We believe that the four schemes outlined below will help to enable wide participation by young people and adults in quality outdoor experiences, and provide reassurance for customers that the centre’s systems have been externally verified.
Adventure Activities Licensing Authority
Adventure Activities Licensing Authority ensures that activity providers follow good safety management practices. Our current license (No: L13193/R0740) is valid until 20th January 2019 and covers the following activities:
- Hill Walking & Mountaineering
- Mine Exploration
- Off-Road Cycling
- Open Canoeing (inland and sheltered tidal water)
- Rock Climbing
For information regarding our delivery of non-licenseable activities please see the provider forms below.
You can find out more information about AALA licensing on the AALA website.
Learning Outside the Classroom (LOtC) Quality Badge
The LOtC Quality Badge is the nationally recognised indicator of good quality educational provision. Our current Quality Badge is valid until 13th March 2018.
Adventuremark is a non-statutory safety scheme devised by the Adventure Activity Industry Advisory Committee (AAIAC) for providers of adventurous activities that are outside the scope of the Adventure Activity Licensing regulations. Our current Quality Badge is valid until 13th March 2018.
Many local authorities require providers of educational experiences to complete a provider form to assure that they meet required safety standards and policies. Please download a copy of the completed provider form for Thornbridge Outdoors.
At Thornbridge Outdoors we hold both public liability insurance and employer’s liability insurance.
