Instructors

WES Instructors go through a rigorous and extensive assessment process before being signed off as fit to instruct under the WES brand.

The following Instructors have met the criteria for WES Accreditation. They have provided documentary evidence to the Society to demonstrate that they: hold Public Liability Insurance cover to a minimum of £5 million; have attended a recognised Child Protection course and hold a recognised First Aid qualification, as defined in the Society’s Rulebook (Rules 19.1/7).

Anyone booking an Instructor should request evidence that this documentation is up to date. The Society cannot accept any responsibility for Instructors not having up to date Insurance or First Aid.
