National Mountain Sports Centre Partners with UCLan

24 Nov 2014

Sports and outdoors students from the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) will benefit from practical lessons with one of the country’s top providers of outdoor adventure activities following a partnership agreement with Plas y Brenin, the National Mountain Sports Centre, to help deliver some of its courses.


This unique partnership between UCLan and the Sport England National Centre means that UCLan students studying on the outdoor leadership and adventure sports coaching degrees will benefit from the expertise of staff from Plas y Brenin, as well as that of staff at UCLan, in one of the most popular outdoor activity locations in the UK. 

A combination of UCLan and Plas y Brenin staff will jointly deliver a range of modules at the National Centre in Snowdonia that develop the students’ practical, coaching and leadership skills.  This includes mountaineering, rock climbing, white water kayaking, sea kayaking, mountain biking and canoeing. 

In turn, the University’s Institute of Coaching and Performance will work closely with Plas y Brenin on research projects, such as understanding the judgement and decision making processes of experts in adventure sports, that will help to influence the future development of the outdoor profession over the next decade. 

Plas y Brenin is based in Snowdonia, North Wales, and is managed by The Mountain Training Trust on behalf of Sport England.
