Outward Bound calls for more Kiwi instructors

From Summer Times with Emile Donovan , 9:20 am on 14 January 2021

Last year and the pandemic that came with it changed a lot of industries fundamentally in New Zealand, and outdoor education was no exception. Outward Bound is seeking more locals as instructors to fill the vacancies traditionally filled by international instructors. 

Up to a quarter of the 28 instructor roles at the Outward Bound base in Anakiwa the Marlborough Sounds are usually filled by international applicants. But Outward Bound training manager Sharon Nicholas sees this off less as a problem, and more of an opportunity.
