 Instructor Training Program

Overview

Are you a doctor? A teacher? An architect? A trek leader? Well, it doesn't really matter for our outdoor education program!

 

This program is simply designed for people who are passionate about honing their outdoor skills - from outdoor cooking/ climbing to handling minor medical issues in the wilderness (WFR), from map reading to having meaningful conversations/ reflection sessions, it is a complete course, smallest of small details included. 

We know you can gain knowledge about these things from elsewhere too, so our main focus will be on soft skills. Small things like how to teach what you know with interest, or create a space in the group where others feel comfortable enough to share and speak their hearts out, and many more such skills will be focused on in this program. 

We will train you to be a more confident outdoor person who can lead and take care of others in the wild.

Philosophy

A way away from a future ‘ecological doom’ comes from sensitizing the people of tomorrow to many beautiful ecosystems of the present-day world. In lands yet untouched by technology, we see the real machinery of local communities working in great rhythm to keep their lands clean, functional, and calming. Having explored the Himalaya for most of our adult lives, we have come to realize that the more we connect with the great outdoors, the better we connect with ourselves. The philosophy behind Beyond The Wall’s Outdoor Education programs is built on this.

Every land we’ve crossed has piqued our curiosity and prepared us for the charms of the next. Through outdoor education that is the sense of wonder and connection with nature, we aim to inspire, in kids and adults. Be it through rock climbing where we have challenged our individual strengths, or pitching tents and cooking together in the wilderness, we have devised ways to function as a strong team and found a safe, reflective space to share thoughts.    

Through outdoor education, we develop an awareness of simple things like LNT (Leave No Trace), respecting people, being kind, and curious, and exploring the unknown without harming it. We learn to pack our bags right so they don’t weigh us down and build mud houses that let us revel in our love for all things natural. We have and will, by being outdoors, become the guardians of a better world.
