New for 2022 - Join us on Thursday 21st July at our Apprentice open day where you will be able to explore Avon Tyrrell Outdoor Centre and learn more about what we do and who we work with. 

Opportunities exist to join:

  • Our 18–24-month apprenticeship to become a fully qualified outdoor instructor
  • Our 12–18-month apprenticeship to train to become a qualified chef


The day is also a great opportunity to explore our volunteering days, which provide a great way to give something back to the local community and to support your CV development.

The exact format of the day will vary depending on the numbers and interests of those attending, but a provisional programme is outlined below:


  • Arrival & Welcome
  • Site Tour – This will provide a chance to look around the site and chat with members of staff in the area you have registered an interest in
  • Activities - A chance to try one or two 45 min activity sessions to explore what we do


To help us provide you with the best possible experience we encourage everyone to arrive at the start of the requested slot, but if this is not possible please let us know either as part of the booking information provided, or by contacting us at  Please note, there will be plenty of time after each slot to informally chat with the staff and a representative from our apprenticeship provider, Locomotivation, so please bear this in mind when making your travel plans.

Here are a few reflections from some of our current apprenticeship:

“The last five months have been a whirlwind of new information, new friends, new fears, new experiences” Logan

"I like helping young people to learn new skills, develop and just get outside and have fun"- Nathan

“I love being outdoors and meeting lots of new people, helping them build their confidence” - Maya

Regardless of the opportunity you would like to explore as part of the open day you will get chance to hear from the staff that work here about what it is really like and experience some of the activities our guests enjoy.

The day is free of charge, but booking is essential, so please secure your place here
