New Generation have more than a
decade of experience training
ski instructors across the Alps. What started as something we did
for our friends has developed into something much more exciting.
Nowadays, we aim to guide and support
those with a passion for skiing. By succeeding in their exams and developing a
career, you can in turn can develop and inspire others to enjoy skiing. It is
our responsibility to create the right environment for you to develop your
skills and achieve your goals. So whether you’re a gap year student, someone
looking to switch careers or a BASI Level
4 candidate, we have the course for you.
Our BASI Level
1 & 2 Residential Ski instructor courses are an
awesome way to kick-start a career or spend a year out while earning some
qualifications. These courses are based in Courchevel, Méribel, Stubai and
Verbier. Living in the Alps for 2-3 months allows you to be immersed in the ski
culture, gaining a taste of what it’s like to be an instructor and receiving
totally focused training.
All BASI exam and membership fees are included in our
programmes, as well as 180 hours of on-snow training, off-snow support and
learning, and language lessons. In Courchevel, Meribel and Verbier we even provide
you with your own avalanche kit to keep. All students receive expert coaching
from New Generation’s top BASI trainers and can explore new skills with focused
days in racing, freeride and park skiing.
We don’t stop there – we have a complete instructor training pathway,
meaning we help develop instructors right all the way from BASI 1 to 4. Many
choose to stay with New Generation after becoming fully qualified, which means
a lot to us.
New Generation is a BASI Partner and approved by the British
Association of Snowsport Instructors (BASI) to promote and sell our Ski
instructor Courses using the BASI qualification pathway.
We are not a tour operator - we are a
working ski school and ski instructor training centre. Developing instructors
is therefore central to New Generation, and gives us the ability to work with
our trainees beyond their ski instructor training. Being at the heart of our
working ski school provides trainees with the perfect environment to develop
confidence, presentation skills, group management skills and make awesome
friends along the way.
New Generation being a fully functioning ski school is
something that makes us truly unique: as well as being able to deliver training
in-house, we are also able to continue working with students once they are
qualified. We have several members of the team who joined us for a gap course
and have stayed with New Generation. Some have even helped us open up new ski
schools in new resorts, delivered instructor training or examined trainees as
We aim to do more than just tick
boxes with our courses - that’s why all residential courses include both the
BASI Level 1 and 2 exams and all the required modules. All training is offered
in-house by our own instructors, which means we can offer greater variety
(including off piste, slopestyle and race training). All courses are run by our
experienced BASI ISTD qualified Instructors, meaning you’ll receive the highest
quality training and become the best instructor you can be.
Intensive performance coaching and
personal development both on and off the snow is crucial to your progression as
an instructor. Therefore all students receive expert coaching from New
Generation’s top current BASI Trainers and ISTD instructors. As
well as on-snow coaching, training includes evening sessions and use of video-analysis.
Each student is assigned a mentor who
works with students to write action plans which will be continuously developed
throughout the course. The mentor system allows us to track student’s
progression closely and offer individual help and support for all aspects of
For students who are at all different
stages of the instructor pathway we are able to offer them structured practice
sessions. These allow Level 3 trainee
instructors to offer guidance and support to our BASI 1 & 2 students and
help them to work on points highlighted by their mentors.
