Bibbys Farm


This course is open to all adult scouters to spend a day learning to deliver climbing & abseiling as an activity.
Unless coming with significant experience, it is likely that participants will then need to get some practise working under supervision and return for a practical assessment once confident.

For people who then wish to use this to act as one of our volunteer instructors, we will refund 100% of the fee after delivering a number of sessions for us.

The course will cover the training & technical assessment, a Scout permit will still need some input from the participant in their local District.

Climbing and Abseiling

This course is designed to teach the specific skills required to lead a group climbing and abseiling (single pitch top) on artificial walls and towers.

The course content will cover all aspects of the assessment criteria for a Scout Association artificial top rope, leadership permit.

Please note this is a training course and will not result in participants acquiring a permit merely by attendance. A consolidation period for ongoing learning will ordinarily be required following training, to hone the skills covered and acquire instructing experience (logged) prior to presenting for assessment.
