Whether you’re looking to become an outdoor educator, instructor or just really love the outdoors, this course is perfect for you.
Ensuring that students are industry-ready is at the core of all courses delivered by GOTAFE.
Caleb Stoneman, Coordinator Outdoor Leadership at GOTAFE welcomed news that this course is included in the Free TAFE initiative for 2022 and said it would be welcomed by the industry.
“The outdoor sector is currently experiencing a huge shortage of staff due to COVID-19,” he said.
“With an increased focus on education outdoors as we follow Victoria’s roadmap, the demand for qualified outdoor leaders is already growing.”
The course takes students from bush to beach, equipping them with essential skills and industry experience.
Due to many factors, including the nature of the course, it has always attracted high fees.
"The thing that I love the most is introducing other people to those beautiful locations and getting them passionate about the outdoors"
“Free TAFE has made this course accessible to everyone which will reduce the shortage of staff across the industry,” Caleb said.
“Our aim is to develop dependable, competent and experienced outdoor guides and leaders who are comfortable in any environment.”
