As the Bear Grylls Survival Academy continues to grow, with courses offered across the UK, Europe, USA & China, the search is on for potential leaders. We are looking for individuals who are not only physically fit, charismatic, motivated and determined, but are also humble, kind, courageous and will empower others.
The primary aim of this course is to recruit and train potential instructors for the Academy. This course is dynamic, fast, tough and compact. It will test you and challenge you, but remember, the aim is to turn you into a BGSA Instructor.
You will attend a combination of both theory and practical lessons, delivered by Bear’s own team of highly experienced, knowledgeable, trained and qualified lead instructors. These Instructors are all adventurers in their own right and experts in their field, all of whom have worked alongside Bear as safety assistants, wilderness location scouts, journey producers or as adventurous activity coordinators.

These items will all help you to survive! Please note, all of the clothing and equipment that you bring must be appropriate to the environment and the time of year. This is just a guide and you may not require all the kit. Your instructors will let you know what to take out into the wilderness on arrival-any extra kit can be secured at base camp.
1 x thin active pair and 1 x thicker waterproof outer
Weather Dependant (Optional)
Fresh clothes to change into after the course ends.
…and don't forget a bag full of positive attitude!
I came to BGSA Instructors Course with no expectations, mainly because of curiosity, as one day I'd like to take my children for 24hr Family Course. I must admit that the reality exceeded whatever I had imagined, considering I'm not that easy to impress with this kind of things after 2.5 years spent in Russian Special Forces. After having completed this course I'm not just going to take my children for the Family Course, I'll also bring my wife along! Just kidding! I'll try to become an instructor at BGSA.
