Freelance Outdoor Instructor

Freelance Outdoor Instructor


I am passionate about the outdoors.  That’s why I offer my services as a Freelance Outdoor Instructor!  Keen to develop an outdoor program of your own? Give me a call 07827 547837 to discuss how I can help you!

In the modern world, many of us spend considerable time in front of a computer screen.  Consequently it is easy to forget just how amazing the natural world is.  I feel that it is extremely important to get children and adults away from the screen and into the great outdoors.

What do I offer?

I am able to devise and deliver single one off sessions, to full courses.  Some examples of the types of activity I can lead include:

  • Fire lighting
  • Shelter building
  • Emergency first aid
  • Team-building sessions
  • Off grid living and power systems
  • Woodworking skills
  • Map Skills and Orienteering


As a fully qualified (PGCE) and experienced teacher, I am used to supporting large groups of children.

I have taught woodworking and tool making skills in a workshop environment through teaching Design & Technology.  Furthermore, I have taught students construction skills through building an outdoor office.

My extensive experience as a Freelance Outdoor Instructor includes the challenging role of camp leader for residential Bushcraft camps.  Consequently I am at home managing teams of staff as well as ensuring the safety of groups of up to 120 children for periods of up to a week.

In addition to working with school groups, I have considerable experience organising and running activities for disabled adults.

I am first aid trained, a qualified lifeguard, Qualified Lowland Leader and qualified teacher.
