Kyle Becomes Bushcraft Practitioner
Young Kyle McHolland-Pilcher completed his Bushcraft Competency Training up in the wilds of Derbyshire this week and is working towards his assessment. The 15 year old is currently at school, but provides ADO with animal care duties over the weekends and is looking at moving into an apprenticeship when he does leave school, with the company.
Kyle took part in the course provided by Woodland Survival Crafts, who are our partners of choice and have succesfully guided through many members of the ADO team in the practitioner skills. WSC owner 'Bushcraft' Dave Watson was impressed with Kyle's skills, especially as he was on the course with 7 other adults. Dave mentioned, " Kyle showed a maturity beyond his years and was especially good at firemaking, creating embers from scratch much quicker than the other students on the course." Additionally, WSC were so impressed with his approach that they have offered him some work experience in 2020 to develop his skills further.
