3. NICAS Home Education Courses


Course Information


Our home educated rock climbing sessions are the perfect option for teaching your young people about the fun and active sport of climbing. They are similar to our regular NICAS sessions but at a more convenient time for home education needs

The National Indoor Climbing Award Schemes (NICAS) have been developed to help everyone enjoy the best start in climbing.

Wild Climbers 4-7yrs 

NICAS Wild Climbers offers climbing skills for all, from age 4 to 6. It's a fun, game orientated programme that aims to introduce climbers safely into the indoor climbing environment, developing their awareness of climbing movements, improving confidence and creating a grassroots pathway into additional climbing activities. 

NICAS Wild Climbers meets the 3 key learning areas of the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage), which is the precursor to Key Stage 1 and includes Communication, Physical Development, and Social & Emotional Development.

NICAS Climbing 8-17yrs

NICAS Climbing allows candidates to learn about safety, equipment, training and progression and the many other positive aspects of becoming a climber. Combine this with life skills – trust, communication, teamwork, self-confidence, awareness, risk management and understanding limitations – and it quickly becomes clear why climbing is an amazing sport. A huge amount of learning and development takes place at the climbing wall.

With a nationally recognised syllabus to follow, certificates for achievement, and a structured pathway, children can keep progressing through the NICAS schemes while having a great time along the way.
