With barely any water experience at all prior to joining the Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sport (Outdoor Adventure), Chloe, a former Oak Academy student is now nearly five months into the Apprenticeship programme with Rockley, and is so far, loving it! She has truly come a long way and now has a variety of water and land-based qualifications under her belt.
Why this course?
I thought it would be a challenge. I hadn’t done much on the water apart from a little bit of paddling and I really didn’t like the idea of being in a classroom all week so A-Levels were not an option for me.
What worked for you?
I really enjoyed going out on the water quite and generally just spending time outside. We had optional training on a Wednesday which, in the first year I didn’t do so much of, but in the second year, I really took advantage of the opportunity.
What did you qualify with?
I came out with my RYA Windsurf Instructor as well as my ERCA certification and several other qualifications.
