Train & Mentor

Alpha Outdoors has a successful record of growing leaders in the outdoor pursuits, environmental studies, adventure tourism, youth work, classroom teaching and workplace development fields. We can help you by:

  • Mentoring key management staff or adventure leaders

  • Upskilling adventure guides and leaders in technical and management skills

  • Developing leadership by using outdoor and creative situations to help staff and volunteers work as effective teams

“Can you answer ‘Yes’ to these leadership & training questions?”

  • Do all your management people, staff team, contractors and volunteers understand the ‘big picture’ with respect to desired outcomes and best practice principles?
  • Do they work together as an effective team?
  • Has your person in charge of adventure or leadership programmes had appropriate professional development for their role?
  • Would they benefit from regular professional supervision/mentoring?


  • Do all your outdoor adventure staff hold basic national leadership qualifications such as NZOIA Bushwalk Leader or National Certificate in Outdoor Recreation Leadership (Level 3)?
  • Do those running technical activities hold appropriate outdoor instructor awards such as Rock/Abseil Instructor or Kayak Instructor?


  • Is the leadership potential of individuals recognised and developed?
  • Would you like to see a more innovative approach to leadership development within your institution?
  • Do you send teams across NZ or internationally for cultural/sporting events or service projects?
