Handy Hints :

  • Decided you want to start your teaching career straight after your course finishes and in a country where you are not a citizen, you will need a Working Visa for that country. We recommend that you start organising it now, as having your own work permit greatly increases your employment options.
  • Being dual qualified in skiing and snowboarding is a big asset, especially if you’re a snowboarder. ..Most Snowsports schools will employ a snowboarder with a basic ski qualification (or intermediate level of skiing) before someone with just a snowboard qualification.
  • Set up a good resume/C.V with 2 references and photo, this along with the Rookie Academy’s thumps up and we are there. Remember it is always the Snowsports school final decision.
  • Also having a secondary skill i.e. bartending, waiter, massage therapist, personal trainer etc are great for part time work in your first season.
