The Alpine Snowsport Course Leader [ASCL] award is a 6 day on-snow course held in a complex Alpine resort and accredited by the National Governing Body [Snowsport England].
The course involves training and assessment in all aspects of leadership, navigation and personal performance on the piste, together with knowledge of the mountain environment. The course will focus on helping leaders make professional judgements in relation to the safety, learning and enjoyment of the group they are working with.
The award qualifies teachers and youth leaders to lead young people from their own educational establishment or who are members of a club affiliated to a Home Nation Governing Body. The ASCL award is not designed as a Snowsport teaching or instructing qualification and may not be used as such.
Who Is It For? The awards are primarily aimed at teachers, youth group leaders and other responsible adults wishing to encourage and supervise young skiers and snowboarders. Snowboarders are able to attend the ASCL, but the majority of candidates attending the course must be skiers.
Pre-requisites. To gain the award, the candidate must:
• Be over the age of 21.
• Be a qualified schoolteacher or youth leader.
• Be a full member of Snowsport England or Snowsport Wales
• Have completed the Snowsport Course Organiser award, have a 2-day HSE approved First Aid qualification, completed a Child Protection course and be CRB/DBS checked.
• Have organised or assisted in the organisation/leading of at least three alpine school/youth Snowsport courses
