PGL Level 3 Apprenticeship - Outdoor Activity Instructor

More About the Offer

PGL is the UK's market leading provider of activity holidays and study courses for young people. In 2021 we are excited to launch our new apprenticeship giving 24 apprentices a platform to excel in a career in the outdoors gaining fantastic qualifications, extensive industry experience, and an unforgettable working adventure.

We've been offering guests the experience of a lifetime since 1957 and to deliver this we employ a vibrant, energetic and skilled staff team.

One of the keys to our success is the development and training which we provide our staff. The first step for staff with no experience in the outdoors is our Apprenticeship for Outdoor Activity Instructors.

Our intake for September 2021 is open for applications! No outdoor qualifications are required to apply, we are looking for applicants with a love for the outdoors and a drive to build a career in the industry.

Based at one of our UK activity centres, our comprehensive 14-month training programme and first-class on-the-job training will harness your enthusiasm, giving you the qualifications, skills and knowledge to progress.

Our Activity Instructors are the all-action superheroes to our young guests, the pillars of trust for our party leaders and parents, and the face of PGL. You’ll be at the heart of the PGL experience building the skills to lead activities, from quad biking and fencing to climbing and canoeing, learning to organise entertainment, and ensuring PGL guests have a great stay with us.

Whilst working towards your Outdoor Activity Instructor Apprenticeship (Level 3) you will also have the chance to gain further qualifications from watersports and off ground activities through to health and safety, First Aid and safeguarding, and further development experiences offered by no other provider, all funded by PGL. This means once you have completed your Apprenticeship you will be in a perfect position to advance your career in the outdoors.

In addition, you’ll get paid, you’ll even get a pay rise after 34 weeks, on completion you’re guaranteed a job, and you’ll be living on-site and working with like-minded people in a fun, supportive working environment, sharing an unforgettable experience.

The Apprenticeships will be based at our 5 largest centres

  1. Caythorpe Court, Grantham
  2. Boreatton Park, Shrewsbury
  3. Liddington, Swindon
  4. Marchants Hill, Hindhead
  5. Osmington Bay, Weymouth


As we offer on-site accommodation and meals, applicants can apply from anywhere in the country.

Flexible and helpful

To assist young people, PGL is helping applicants overcome any obstacles to taking up this role, including paying for replacement passports or birth certificates where needed or travel costs to start work.
