I joined the mentoring scheme to expand my knowledge of bushcraft. The format and flexibility made fitting in training days easy and the opportunity to test skills learned and improve delivery of those skills was invaluable. It is not only being able to deliver the skills but the depth of knowledge gained which allowed me greater understanding allowing me to troubleshoot where clients are going wrong giving them a much better experience.
Since completing the mentoring scheme I have also started my own small Bushcraft and Wilderness Skills business which is gradually building, without the knowledge and experience I gained from the mentoring scheme this would not have been as successful and with each bit of feedback I receive, I can directly link most of it to what I have learned during my time on the mentoring scheme. Dave has also been extremely supportive of me in my new endeavours.
