View Full Version : Plumpton College
Made this a new topic because it's so specific. Anyone know anything about the Plumpton College course "Bushcraft and Outdoor Leadership - Advanced Certificate":
I'm not ready for a career change just yet, but this course seems to cover a lot of fun ground and you get a certificate! :lol:
I tried to enroll this year, but was a few weeks late. :evil:
I am contemplating it for next year.
I'm unsure as to whether it wouldbe elligiable for a student loan.
I wouldn't be able to do it without one.
I think that I am going to give these people a call this week and find out what the crack is.
Just think that it sounds like a good personal development course - but fell that qualifications aside, the best instructors have a love of the subject and have put plenty of time in.
If you can do the course around a full time job, then I may well apply - if you cant, then I will just have to keep playing outside :wink:
Thanks for bringing this up. I'm currently at college and this looks like a good way to go. Lots of good courses
I called Plumpton today, trying to find out a bit more information.
Alas, they have none of the old literature left, and wont be publishing a prospectus until May.
Tried to find out stuff about modules, dates, hours, flexibility and timings etc, but to no avail. Guess I will just have to wait until May.
Raz - I dont spose you still have some of the info? :-)
I do indeed :)
I've got the course info, Its on its way to you.
It doe's sound like a good course!
Just re-checked the site for Plumpton, with respect to stretching things out.
"This course is split into 4 Phases to allow flexibility for the candidates but can be completed in one year or longer."
Seems to suggest that you could take longer over it.
Strange to think that they may churn out well trained bods with not many hours/years laid down in the woods sleeping under a bush. :wink:
Still think that this is more of a personal development thing - but hey, I am wrong sometimes :rolleyes:
I've slept under alot of cars after a heavy night. Didn't make me a better mechanic :wink:
Wonder who the course tutors are?
