Become an Instructor
If you are a teacher or youth group leader with an interest in climbing, perhaps you could benefit from becoming an instructor and supervising your own group at Boulders. Just take a look at our CWA joining requirements to see if you have what it takes.
We run Climbing Wall Award (CWA) courses and assessments every 2 months at Boulders. Once the assessment has been passed, you will be able to bring a group of up to 9 people to climb at the centre during opening hours without booking at the external instructor rate.
