Launchpoint and Women Gliding supporting instructor training

Are you a woman interested in becoming a gliding instructor?  To support instructor diversity, Women Gliding with the support of the Launchpoint charity and the BGA are organising an instructor course later in 2023. This course might be made for you!

The application process is uncomplicated. And Launchpoint funding is available. Anyone with the relevant experience even if they are not sure instructing is for them is encouraged to find out more:

drop by for a zoom call at 7:30pm on Thursday 27 April

or if you get this in hard copy:

– find the info pack at or email and they will send it to you (pack will be available after the info session on 27 April)

– call, message or videocall any of the Women Gliding team or post on Women Gliding Community Facebook group and they will get in touch

The course will run as any other BGA instructor course overseen by BGA Training Standards Manager Stu Naylor. The requirements for BGA instructor ratings are detailed here.

We’re trying to encourage a more diverse set of people to at least consider the possibility.  If you have any questions, please contact or
