CPD Transgender Awareness Training for Outdoor Adventure Instructors

The UK's First and only cpd recognised Transgender Awareness Course

This course was developed in response to the rapid rise in young people openly identifying as trans and was co-created with The Outdoors People. The Outdoors People is a trusted provider of amazing school camps and Continuing Professional Development. 

This course will prepare you for working with, supporting and, keeping safe the diverse range of people we meet in adventure education. It has been specially designed to meet the complex and overlapping needs of the Adventure Education Sector. It is co-delivered by Emma and an experienced outdoor adventure instructor and Director of The Outdoors People, Craig Geddes
