The world of work has drastically changed over the last few years. Gone are the days of one size fits all, the Adventure Institute has adopted a strategy of aligning specific industry needs (current and future) with unique student (employee) profiles (skills, talents, and aspirations). The institute recognises the need to align academic and practical training with real-world gaps for skilled practitioners and entrepreneurs! The outdoor and adventure industry provides an opportunity to pursue a passionate career in a multi-faceted industry.

Each learning journey and entry into the working world is customised to your aspirations, experience and personality profile. Our goal is to nurture a continuous relationship with students long after their graduation. Graduates are motivated to become coaches, mentors and to constantly upskill in an ever-changing environment.

Living a life of adventure

Navigating your career, health, and crucial relationships shares many parallels with an adventurous journey. We delve into these connections by examining vital concepts such as stepping beyond your comfort zone, making calculated risk-taking decisions, distinguishing between perceived and real danger, and addressing the fear of rejection or failure.
