This course allows you to train towards your level 3 exams while working within our ski school for the peak weeks of the season.

A few reasons to choose Altitude?
Altitude employs our own students ahead of any other trainees from other smaller schools. The reason for this is that throughout the training we are able to build a confidence and trust in your abilities and the types of clients that we believe are most suited to your skill set (its like a really long interview). Having this confidence in your teaching ability enables us to make sure we guarantee a high level of service to our clients.
Employment is on a part time basis and we provide students with a uniform and work permit. Work is during the holiday weeks of Christmas and New Year, Half Term Holiday weeks in February and the Easter Holidays.
