Charlie is Surfing the Waves of Success

Charlie Unsworth, a 2nd year Adventure Sports student from Whatstandwell, Derbyshire has sent us some awe-inspiring pictures of his Easter holidays spent in Cornwall. Whilst there Charlie undertook further training to compliment his BLC course.

He successfully completed the ISA Level 1 Surf Coach and RLSS Beach Lifeguard qualifications.

When he leaves BLC this year, Chalie will be working as an outdoor instructor and has already been offered 2 other jobs as a surfing instructor.

Allan Shaw, Course Leader for Adventure Sport, said:

“Charlie is walking away after completing the course here at Buxton & Leek College with a fistful of qualifications all of which will make him more employable, including:



  • Lowland Expedition Leader
  • Climbing Wall Instructor
  • REC 16-hour Outdoor 1st Aid
  • Mental Health First Aid
  • Foundation Safety & Rescue Training
  • RYA Level 2 Powerboat
  • and the BTEC Extended Diploma In Sport & Outdoor Adventure Level 3, his full-time study programme at Buxton & Leek College.

Charlie has already been offered lots of employment opportunities for when he completes the course and I am sure that he has a great future in front of him.”
