Equity are a specialist provider of group tours for schools, colleges and other institutions, covering a range of curriculum subjects, ski trips and sports tours. With over 83 years’ experience, Equity are passionate and committed to creating life-changing learning experiences for young people and are the perfect fit for Snow-Camp.
The Excel Programme is our youth instructor course, which takes place throughout February, March and April in London, Glasgow, Birmingham and Bristol. Over 10 weeks the young people train to become qualified ski or snowboarding instructors by participating in the full Snowsport England or Scotland training programme.
Towards the end of the programme the young people spend a week in the Italian mountains, shadowing instructors and gaining valuable mountain experience. We’re incredibly pleased that Equity will be providing our young people with fantastic experiences in the mountains. For many this is will be their first time abroad; broadening their horizons on a personal, as well as on an educational level. This week long residential provides real-life experience for young people enabling them to recognise that they have the ability to start a career in the snowsport industry and beyond; it gives them an increased sense of confidence in their own skiing or snowboarding technique, along with a deeper knowledge of the coaching process ready for their final assessment days when they return to the UK.
Big thank you to Equity for all your support so far and we are looking forward to developing our partnership over the coming years.
