The Low Ropes course is one of the most popular activities here at Thornbridge Outdoors with both day and residential groups, young and old alike.
In order to be able to use the Low Ropes course with a group, we require staff to have attended an induction course here with our instructors.
The Low Ropes Induction (morning session) includes:
- Familiarising yourself with the Low Ropes course itself (by having a go!)
- Different ideas to make the course more enjoyable for your groups
- A risk assessment for the course
The afternoon session (optional) includes familiarising yourself with other visiting staff-led activities here such as:
- Problem Solving
- Nature Trail
These visiting-staff led activities are also popular and our experience is that groups’ enjoyment is improved by staff being more familiar with them.
Alternatively you can stay and attend the Biking Leader Induction Training in the afternoon as part of the combined training course.
- £20 to leaders of Sheffield LA groups
- £30 to leaders of other groups
- Free if your place is included in a ‘Bundle’ programme
We provide hot drinks and other refreshments during the course but meals are not provided – you will need to bring your own packed lunch each day.
Candidates should come suitable dressed to spend most of the day outdoors. Wellies and waterproofs are available to borrow from our stores.
