  • Bluedome - Getting an Interview
    the qualified Instructors gone Time and time again I get candidates applying who have completed one of these so called College Courses preparing students for the Industry Finding they only have their BCU 2 Star etc It shocks me that after completing a 2 year course these students do not hold anywhere near the desired skills and qualifications to get a job in the industry Now before all College Lecturers Instructors are in uproar and start writing in complaining there are exceptions to this I have over the years had some excellent ex students We run an adult course training people to work in the Industry and I would say that over 40 of the students are disgruntled College students young adults who have been completely let down by these Colleges They have been told one thing at recruitment but the courses never come up with the so called goods Instead the Colleges continue in coning young adults into Further Education promising them one thing and delivering another Oh what a great attraction Come and do a course that you spend one or two days participating in outdoor pursuits Who can blame the students We all wish these courses were about when we were younger Surely within 2 years these colleges can get them through some of the necessary qualifications Obviously not Am I asking for too higher qualifications There was a time when we were looking for people with a minimum of SPA and BCU Level 2 Coach Now due to the desperately low number of enquiries I have even had to lower this standard What is the point in Colleges advertising and recruiting to these courses if they do not give them the necessary skills qualifications to take that step into the Industry These young people end up

  • Bluedome - Getting an Interview
    If you are really having a toil then get someone to help Don t lose faith at this stage keep trying Be brief but accurate Don t write pages of detailed descriptions about any previous posts or qualifications they simply will not be read The best rule is to keep your CV to two sides of single A4 sheet of paper If you are supplied with a form to fill in by the employer don t over run the space for your replies A good instructor will or rather should have good communication skills Get this across in your CV If you have other skills in addition to your outdoor ones make sure you get them onto your CV Good all round abilities numeracy literacy other languages and computer skills will all help to make you a more attractive employee Always be honest There is no point telling an employer that you have this or that qualification when you don t Even if they do not check with the qualifying body you will soon be seen to be lacking If you say you can lead E4 but really struggle with HVS then say so One day someone might want to see that fearless and impressive lead Further points for job seekers As a new starter the employer will be looking for several key skills or abilities enthusiam willingness to learn good interpersonal skills even temprament sense of humour essential Miss out on one of these and you could be looking elsewhere for that job Experience and logbook records are important to your new employer If you have a logbok full of days at the same crag it will look a lot less attractive when compared to someones logbook who has been piling in lots of different experiences Try and work

  • Bluedome
    meant the bike the boots the hills When a car was obtained then Scotland and Wales became easy targets of my visits to the outdoors My career proper in the outdoors such as it was came about thanks to the financial crash in the late Thatcher years My business had to close or I would have gone bust and I found myself unemployed with few prospects A year off seemed like a good idea and a series of extended trips to the hills began My interest in climbing was also fuelled and I began regular visits to a new climbing wall After the occasional cup of tea with the owners I was asked to consider working for them Firstly to help develop a climbing shop and then secondly to assist with group supervison After all those years working at something or other I had stumbled onto what I really wanted to work in the outdoor industry doing something I loved During my time there I discovered that life is not about grafting for money Money has its place but it is often the worst reason in the world for doing something What is important is to have a sense of satisfaction and contentment at a job well done Sometimes the job would mean hours cleaning climbing holds ready to be used again or helping a beginner learn how to tie in and belay or to see a disabled young person find out that they can do something extreme when everyone has said they can t The work took me into contact with some of the greats of the outdoors and some of the very ordinary people from talented young people from private schools to working with young offenders who were trying to deal with their own difficulties The most satisfying work came from assisting Manchester School for the Deaf and working with groups of disabled young people from Bridge College in Stockport After working at the centre for 6 years I was Headhunted and moved to the outdoor trade and at the same time started to plan an outdoors web site The job was with a leading UK based distributor of outdoor equipment and allowed me to enter another level of the industry Sponsorship and donations of equipment brought me to meet Sir Chris Bonington and Doug Scott Mountain Rescue also became an interest and I managed to film photograph and fly with both the RAF and Navy rescue services The job gave me the chance to look at all levels of the industry from the designers and maunufacturers to the sales and marketing and retailing sectors When all the pieces came together I found that producing BlueDome let me tap in to all the experiences Taking a break at Slippery Stones Bridge close to Ladybower BlueDome is now my main activity and I find that every day brings something new It may be an email from a reader asking for assistance or the chance to read a new book
