Lukas’s Story

Lukas’s Story

Published: 5th December 2018

Lukas joined the LEAD Education Outdoor Adventure (BTEC Level 3) Programme in September 2017. From the very first open evening with us, Lukas made an excellent impression demonstrating excellent communication skills, a willingness to learn and a desire to follow his career ambitions in the outdoor education industry.

By working, training and learning alongside professional outdoor education practitioners, has allowed Lukas to channel his natural leadership skills and get ‘hands on’ experience within coaching and leaderships roles. He always demonstrates a professional attitude and is a ‘natural’ when working with his peers, other students and his teachers.

This professional attitude and a willingness to improve gave rise to the opportunity of Lukas being offered a summer placement within the Acorn Adventure company in the South of France, in the Ardèche River no less! Here, Lukas was able to demonstrate his coaching skills first hand within a professional outdoor education environment, away from home oversees and developing some high-quality coaching and work experience.

Lukas is now in his final year at Lead Education and applying to university and apprenticeships within the sport and outdoor adventure industries. He is a mature and confident young man, he has worked extremely hard on this course and we will continue to support Lukas throughout his coaching and leadership career.
