The GoSkydive Apprenticeship Scheme

The GoSkydive, Tandem Skydive Instructor Apprenticeship scheme is the first on its kind in the world with all skydive ratings and licences coming from the British Parachute Association (BPA). Designed by GoSkydive founder and BPA councillor Gordon Blamire the scheme is a result of the year on year growth of this high adrenalin experience. For some, tandem skydiving is the very start of an interest in skydiving as a hobby and sport but for the new majority it is a once in a lifetime experience and a life changing event.

Exceptional Customer Service is at the heart of the GoSkydive brand and is a major part of the apprenticeship programme. GoSkydive Tandem instructors are required to not only be fully qualified, full time professionals, they need to manage the range of emotions that first time skydives bring, they need to be committed to delivering the best experience for every customer every time, they need to understand that every element of the customer journey is part of the tandem skydive experience and they need to fully appreciate how it is delivered.
