Watersports training & activity trips


Get on the water


Welcome Reflecting back on 2019, one of our biggest achievements are the steps we have made to conserve and preserve our planet. We now question everything we do and the effect this has on the environment and all our staff have embraced all these changes - big and small. We are so lucky to work in such creative learning environments and as a teaching establishment which sees over 10,000 young people and adults come through our doors, we feel it is our duty to educate those on the importance of looking after the very waters we use on a daily basis. It is ours to enjoy but also ours to protect.

Following an amazing 2019 season, we reviewed all our products and I really hope that you enjoy the improvements we have made. Our instructor training programmes have become more flexible, which we hope will fit better into people’s busy lives, in the same way as offering shorter learn to sail courses. We have added some new and exciting changes to our summer family activity holidays in France, with the option to include surf lessons into the programme this year. For our schools and groups, we have also looked at their trips and have made some great changes to their programmes for 2020.

Our Education programme has expanded and as well as our very popular BTEC Level 3 Sport (Outdoor Adventure) course, we have introduced a Level 2 Diploma Sport (Outdoor Adventure), as well as an Outdoor Activity Instructor Apprenticeship Programme. It is so rewarding to watch these young people develop from school leavers to confident young adults, who are so enthusiastic about working in the watersports and outdoor industry. So, if you are an experienced sailor possibly looking to pass your knowledge onto others as an instructor, or just someone who wants to improve or perfect your skills on the water, we are sure we have the right course for you! So, take a look at all the exciting opportunities we have on offer, and I and all the fantastic team at Rockley look forward to seeing you very soon! Pip Woods – Managing Director

Level 2 Diploma Sport (Outdoor Adventure)

Outdoor Activity Instructor Apprenticeship

For your post GSCE Education and Training our BTEC Level 3 Sport (Outdoor Adventure) is a unique course designed to provide both academic and internationally recognised qualifications across a range of disciplines that will enable students to build a career in the outdoor and leisure industries specialising in watersports.

This unique course has been designed to enable candidates to start their career in the outdoors and leisure industry.

Our Apprenticeship programme gives an opportunity to those who have completed the BTEC Level 3 Sport (Outdoor Adventure) to benefit from further training and experience with Rockley. The Apprenticeship is a real job with training, enabling learners to earn while they still learn and develop in the Watersports industry and also to achieve further nationally recognised qualifications to prepare them for a more senior role in the company.

As well as offering a high level of vocational training giving you the qualifications required to go straight into employment, our BTEC Level 3 course also gives you a direct route to university as it is equivalent to 3 A levels.
