At Acclimbatize we consider that safety and quality are intrinsic. We recognise our responsibility to conduct activities within a solid framework of safety.
We are privileged to employ some of the most highly qualified and experienced instructors in the country, our equipment store is of first class standard and our insurance details and operating policies are available to all visits co-ordinators.
We identify that managing risk is a life skill and in some circumstances we may actively encourage participants to become engaged in the process of risk assessment at the planning stages, while undertaking activity and during debriefing and reviews.
It is UK law, that providers of adventure activities to young people under 18 require an outdoor activities licence. Acclimbatize holds the appropriate licence. Our Adventure Activity Licensing Authority – Reference number is R1224.
Quality on sessions is measured by using key indicators such as participation, enjoyment, skill acquisition, improved confidence and social awareness.
Additionally, Acclimbatize holds both the Learning Outside the Classroom and Adventure Mark Awards. These are non mandatory awards that inspect and audit our internal management systems, course content and the quality of our face to face provision.
