We are super excited to announce that our GAP Year (Gap at Adventure Plus) applications for September 2019 are now open. It feels surreal to be thinking about new GAP year instructors when we have so much on the go currently with our amazing 2018/19 team.
Benefit from our Years of Experience
We have been running our GAP programme for over 20 years and each year we are blessed to see the amazing growth in character, strength and ability in each of the young people who choose to spend their year with us. On top of that all we see young men and woman walk such encouraging journeys on their individual walks of faith. It is not uncommon for our staff team to be challenged, inspired and encouraged by our GAP year team as we live life together at A+.
If you or someone you know would benefit from being a part of the 2019/20 GAP Year team we would love to hear from you. Spaces are limited so apply soon! Applications are now open until 20th July 2019. Please get in touch with our GAP Co-ordinator, Graham, to express your interest. He will then send on all the details you need to complete your application.
Key to our GAP year are these 4 elements of experience and personal growth which we like to refer to as DisTIL.
- Discipleship: Grow in your relationship with God and develop skills in encouraging others
- Training: Gain nationally recognised Adventure Training Qualifications
- Instructor: Help coach adventure activities to over 7,000 children and young people
- Leadership: Grow in self-confidence as you become aware of your strengths and qualities
All set against the background of our 'SELL' theme:
Serve: Serving each other on the team, as we work together to serve the children and youth in our care.
Excellence: Aiming to be the best in all we do within the team, with guests and in our private lives.
Leadership: Qualities of a Leader and a team member (followership) are similar and central.
Love: Be part of a culture of Love: for God, all people, His created world… and know we are greatly loved.
So… if you love the outdoors and would like the opportunity to share your passion with young people, while picking up some great qualifications too, get in touch and APPLY NOW.
