Instructor Development Programme

CAMP CHALLENGE team of instructors are central to our youth development movement and the Instructor Development Programme (IDP) is the framework that guides their growth and development. Our IDP framework is aligned to the National Youth Achievement Award (NYAA). By going through the IDP, instructors will also complete the necessary requirements for them to achieve NYAA gold.

In order for CAMP CHALLENGE to reach out to and positively impact as many youths as we possibly can, we need to have a team of well developed instructors. As illustrated by this picture of two rotating gears, when the smaller gear is well-oiled and turning efficiently, it will also lead to the bigger gear rotating well.

The IDP is made up of these following components:

  • National Youth Achievement Award
  • Alpha Challenge Scholarship
  • Instructor Progression Structure
  • Training and Courses

The Instructor Development Programme has 3 aspirations:

  1. To build a community of instructors who are committed to self development.
  2. To positively impact the lives of CAMP CHALLENGE instructors.
  3. To talent-spot youths with the right attitude, skill and knowledge to join our sister company, FOCUS Adventure as corporate adventure learning facilitators.

The benefits of joining the IDP includes:

  1. NYAA programme for those who are eligible
  2. Attend in-house training
  3. Subsidize courses
  4. ‘Train-the-trainers’ opportunities with new instructors
  5. Invitation to CAMP CHALLENGE outings and events
  6. Career opportunity with CAMP CHALLENGE or our sister companies FOCUS Adventure or Outdoor Adventures.
  7. Scholarship to further studies

With effect from 1st May 2017, CAMP CHALLENGE has introduced a non-compete policy for associate instructors. Instructors in CAMP CHALLENGE will under-go intensive training, which requires heavy investment of time and money. This policy is to ensure our investments are not lost and to give us the assurance to continue to invest in the development of our associates.
