We have intergrated NICAS in to our school climbing programme and this is available upon request.
NICAS scheme aims:
Structure Of The Scheme
The scheme comprises five levels of award aimed at complete novices to expert climbers. The scheme is split into two parts and takes a minimum of 100 hours to complete in its entirety. Part 1 contains levels 1 and 2 and Part 2 contains Levels 3 to 5. Upon registering with an Awarding Centre candidates receive a log booklet for Part 1 and a log folder for Part 2. After achieving each level they are awarded with a certificate on behalf of the ABCTT.

The five levels are:
An entry level aimed at novices that recognises their ability to climb safely under supervision.
Aimed at promoting good practice in climbing and bouldering unsupervised on an artificial wall.
A more advanced top roping and bouldering level that focuses on developing technique and movement skills.
Concentrates on the skills required to both lead climb and belay a lead climber.
The top level that focuses on improving performance, a deeper understanding of climbing systems and the wider world of climbing.
