Qualifications, Skills and Adventures we offer

Beyond the Edge is a specialist training company. We are based in the Peak District and offer a range of adventures, training, first aid, leadership development, technical advice and consultancy. Courses are aimed primarily at individuals or small groups, but our first aid, technical advice and consultancy services are used by everyone from individuals to major national companies.

Our courses are suitable for those taking their first steps in the hills through to training and assessment for National Governing Body Instructor qualifications. Our bespoke training services can prepare you for your first hill walk, rock climb, Everest base camp trek or 8000m summit and everything in between.

We are one of the most experienced providers of mountain training in the UK and our passion is in inspiring others to enjoy adventures outside. We offer low ratios and a very high standard of safety, care and enjoyment. This, coupled with our highly experienced and friendly instructors means you are sure to have a safe and unforgettable experience.

The standard activities are listed below, but our depth of knowledge allows us to easily create something bespoke to suit your needs. If you are unsure what you would like or just want to bounce some ideas of us, please get in touch.

What we don’t do

We don’t usually cater for Stag or Hen parties (unless they are highly adventurous) or large groups wanting multiactivity days. This is simply because these groups normally want the lowest price instruction possible and we pride ourselves on quality not high volumes. However, if you have happened across this page whilst looking for a provider for these events, we are very happy to direct you to a company that does offer this.
