Chris said studying at Northumberland College motivated him to achieve. He is now an Outdoor Lecturer at the college’s Kirkley Hall Campus.

I decided to study at Northumberland College because of the range of courses on offer.

I enjoyed the practical sessions with specialist staff.

Climbing, paddling, mountaineering, developed my skills learnt on the course.


Motivating, experience, achievement.

I am an Outdoor Education Lecturer at Northumberland College.

The course allowed me to focus on gaining practical skills to develop my experiences and ultimately gain the qualifications needed to work in the Outdoor industry.
