Chance to start a new career in adventure sports
Thursday 31st of August 2017
Thrill-seekers can start a new career in adventure sports thanks to a unique training opportunity.
Denbighshire County Council and Cadwyn Clwyd are contributing funding to provide subsidised training sessions to increase the number of outdoor sports instructors in Denbighshire’s Dee Valley to meet rising demand.
The courses will offer training for new instructors as well as upskilling current qualifications and will focus on white-water rescue and paddle boarding.
The project was funded by the Council’s Tourism Growth Plan and Cadwyn Clwyd secured funding through the Welsh Government’s Rural Communities - Development Programme 2014-2020, which is funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development.
Support and advice has also been provided by the Clwydian Range and Dee Valley AONB.
Sessions take place in September and October.
Providing funding for the sessions is part of the Council’s work on developing the local economy by helping to increase visitor numbers to the area.
