Instructor Training

"The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience"

Eleanor Roosevelt

Grafham Water Centre organises a number of instructor training programmes to encourage the development of appropriate skills and approaches in a variety of disciplines.

These courses are taught following the syllabus of the relevant National Governing Body and can be taken as part of our Fast Track Programme or individually.


Brilliant, helpful, knowledgeable, great teaching skills, respectful of all students – just AMAZING!  Outstanding professional organisation.
