Teaching Children

Teaching Children to Ski  and Snowboard can be a challenging process. Children tend to have a much shorter attention span than adults.

This can be difficult after a short while on the slope as it may start becoming more and more difficult to relay information over to the children.

This can cause issues as they need to understand how to stay safe whilst learning to Ski or Snowboard.

Falling over and not getting techniques right within the first few goes can upset children, meaning you have to give them support, encouragement and praise all the time to keep them involved with the lessons and feeling confident with their progress.

Ski / Snowboard lessons are a great way to boost confidence for those children who lack is as it allows them to pick up new skills and independence.

It is also important to have breaks, kids love having fun and will want the chance to play in the snow as well as having a drink and snack to keep them fueled for the day.

They are much smaller of course and vulnerable to the cold so make sure they have the correct Clothing and Equipment to keep them warm and safe for a long day on the slopes !

Ski Instructor Course Providers

Here are a few Ski / Snowboard Training Companies who offer Courses around the world:

Instructor Qualification Levels

The British Association of Ski Instructors (BASI) has four levels of Qualifications:

Level 1 - For individuals who want to teach Ski / Snowboard beginners.

Level 2 - Allows you to teach intermediate level students on marked slopes. Usually recognised in most European countries outside of France.

Level 3 - Allows you to teach advanced students on different terrains. Also allows work in France for 3 years as a trainee Ski Instructor.

Level 4 - The highest level of qualification you can achieve. Level 4 allows you to teach all levels of Skiers / Snowboarders and are allowed to lead trainee Ski Instructors. You can work Worldwide including major European destinations (such as France) if you have passed the Euro Test.

We provide cover for individuals who have BASI qualifications up to and including Level 4.
