What Happens at a Rockley Open Event?

This year we had the launch of our new course presentation and video. This talk gave visitors the opportunity to learn all about Rockley and the fantastic opportunities that are available here for sixth form learnings.

Course presentation

We talked about all the course options be it level two or three and all the practical sports we covered. Not only that, we covered all the free optional RYA training up to Instructor level that is available to our learners. Work experience in France, ski trips to Italy and days out coasteering and to the waterpark were also mentioned! 

Practical Learning

Visitors explored our facilities and chatted to subject specialists across all classroom units and practical activities, allowing them to see the resources available to help them succeed and really launch their careers. We also discussed all the free RYA windsurfing and sailing training available offered to our learners with a cash value of virtually £2000!

Be inspired: Our Alumni stories

On the day, visitors got to meet our alumni and speak to people that have got gained course experience. Ex BTEC students spoke about their journey through the course which has led to them being able to continue “Living the Dream” - working as an instructor for Rockley Watersports in the south of France.

Let’s get centre specific! >

When it comes to residential activity trips for young people, there is generally a ‘top 5’ when it comes to what group leaders are looking for. Amongst safety, types of activities and company reputation is always centre and location. This is why, as a company, when choosing an activity centre, the location is at the forefront of our decision-making. Our centres have been specifically selected for their capacity to offer a range of fantastic activities and enhance both the pupil and group leader adventure experience.

We're making waves!
