This year’s 4th Form AIP (Assistant Instructor Programme) students officially started training at the weekend, taking part in either the Mountain Biking AIP course or the Rock Climbing AIP course.
Students will now begin working towards their MIAS (Mountain-Bike Instructors Award Scheme) Level 1 or their NICAS (National Indoor Climbing Awards Scheme) Level 2 as part of the co-curricular programme at Fettes College.
Although the courses are initially offered in 4th Form, students in 5th, 6th and U6th Form also have the opportunity to progress their qualifications during their time at Fettes.
