Climb when you’re ready

Over the past 3 months the Outdoor Learning Service have been providing mentoring and workshops sessions for teachers and community group leaders from across ELC who are working towards gaining their Climbing Wall Award (CWA).

In order to gain confidence and get practice working with groups Megan Houchin brought a young group to the wall last night and delivered an introductory climbing session under the supervision of one of the Outdoor Learning Service staff. And she did great – well done Megan, the first one is always the hardest!

At the wall

Gaining group management experience like this, practicing with peers and the mentoring provided by the Outdoor Learning Service before going on to the Mountain Training’s Training and Assessments courses will enable more teachers and community leaders to bring groups to the local wall at Forester Park in Tranent and go up to the walls in Edinburgh.
