Summer Season Courses

You can combine working with gaining a qualification, coaching certificate or simply learn more about your chosen field or sport.

Outdoor sports companies offer the chance to 'earn while you learn' and get paid while you also complete an outdoor sports competency award. Some outdoor training organisations such as Flying Fish will train you, then help find you work. Some companies offer free watersports instructor training for disadvantaged 18 - 24 year olds and subsidised instructor courses for all over 18's.

Another great way to get that bit more out of your time away is to get work as a TEFL school assistant and work towards a teaching certificate while you do it (see the TEFL section for more info). There are also many sports academies for sports such as football and tennis that offer summer long courses and training camp places. As part of a gap year you might want to volunteer (contribution normally required) and train in sub aqua or gain practical experience in your chosen field.
