A group of children and staff taking part in a race.

Our core team are a blend of qualified teachers, outdoor instructors, forest school practitioners and second careerers who all share the same passion for engaging children with learning through adventure. All of our team are DBS checked, and first aid qualified and are fully risk assessed. To apply to join the team email paul@weareadventurers.co.uk

During holiday clubs and at Birthday Parties, our team expands to welcome support leaders who help deliver some of the low risk content under the supervision of the core team. These students return year after year, growing in confidence and ability and bolstering their CV for future applications. To apply to be a support leader email paul@weareadventurers.co.uk

Alongside developing the learning through adventure programme, he’s piloting an intervention programme designed to help children who’ve had a difficult experience through covid to re-engage with schools. Paul was diagnosed as dyslexic when he was 15, which means that he understands first hand about the difficulties some children face in the classroom.
