We are delighted to announce that the Outdoor Learning Service are now able to offer young climbers in East Lothian a nationally recognised award in indoor climbing; the National Indoor Climbing Achievement Scheme.
In July we became a NICAS Awarding Centre, one of only a handful of public sector organisations in Scotland. The NICAS award can be delivered by the service’s Outdoor Education Teachers over a number of sessions at the local Tranent climbing wall, and potentially visits to Alien Rock and EICA at Ratho.
NICAS allows young people to progress up a number of award levels. The Outdoor Learning Service are able to deliver levels 1 and 2 of the fives steps of the award; Foundation Climber and Top Rope Climber. Contact Andy Duff if you want to know more.
