Jon Brookes


I have been employed at Conway Centres: Anglesey for over 22 years, my current position being Head of Outdoor Education, responsible for the outdoor element of all the courses delivered at the centre. My involvement with outdoor activities began while at school when I became interested in competitive white water kayaking. It developed through school outdoor residential visits where I also developed a passion for climbing and mountaineering. Over the years my interests have expanded to include surfing, sailing and mountain biking and I now hold numerous governing body awards which include B.Ed (Hons) in Outdoor Education, Mountain Instructor Award, Winter Mountain Leader, Level 4 Coach in White Water Kayak and Sea Kayak, Level 3 Coach Canoe, Dinghy Senior Instructor, Powerboat Instructor and Accredited Practitioner of the Institute of Outdoor Learning. In the early stages of my involvement with outdoor activities I realised that I enjoyed teaching people and helping them to develop through taking part in adventurous activities, that is still true today.  My personal challenge is to enable as many people as possible to experience the benefits of Outdoor Education.
