With our NO STRESS PACK : free accommodation, uniform and liftpass Are you looking to become a fully qualified ski instructor? Passed your Test Technique and BASI 2/Cycle Preparatoire or equivalent? You will be given a Livret de Formation, making you a trainee ski instructor authorised to teach in France. Now you need to find a ski school with a licensed ‘Centre de formation’ (training centre). At this time, the only ski schools registered as training centres are French (no British ski schools hold this status). Why choose our ski school to be your training centre? We are a recognised training centre eligible to accept you as a trainee ski instructor to work as you continue to train towards becoming fully qualified. We have an international clientele and are actively looking to invest in and recruit new trainee instructors. With us you’ll benefit from the trainee #NoStress Pack which includes: - in-resort accommodation paid for (valued at 2500€ per season) - instructor uniform - a full area lift pass - a minimum of 250 hours paid teaching work throughout the season - A great rate of pay (30€ per hour) - free instructor training - free access to our workshop This is a rare offer, that, at the time of writing, doesn’t exist in any other ski school in France. So why are we offering such an amazing deal? We know it is becoming more and more difficult for you, trainee instructors, to gain your qualification. This is due to mounting financial pressures and a lack of structure and support to prepare you for your exams. Our aim is to take the stress out of the financial side and provide a solid coaching environment so you can focus on passing your exams. And there’s something in it for us too. We’re looking to recruit more young, dynamic, internationally focused ski instructors into our teams across the Alps. Make your career with us Newly qualified instructors can follow a career path at one of our 10 ski schools in the French Alps. And there are many different paths you can take. In recent years, several of our schools have become renowned for their adaptive (disabled) ski programme providing sit-ski training to our instructors with a view to being able to make skiing accessible to all. This is just one path you could take. Throughout your career our ski school will enrich your knowledge and experience.
