The student climbing wall safety seminar which the Castle ran at the end of September was a good success, attracting student leaders from University College London and the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons, giving us a chance to pass on effective teaching techniques to those who will be supervising and teaching new climbers in the centre. It also provided the students with a perfect opportunity to speak to the Castle Management and raise any issues they have regarding the centre.
Although the seminar is aimed at students, anyone with an interest in supervising novice climbers is welcome to attend. We're giving people the chance to attend this seminar by adding an additional session next week, which will be run by one of The Castle's Centre Managers, Efua Uiterwijk.
