Keith Mitchelmore. Director (Management)

B.Sc.(Hons) Environmental Science (Southampton)

My passion to teach in the outdoors and follow my interests in environmental education/natural history came to fruition in January 1977 when I joined the fieldstudies department at Calshot Activities Centre, Hampshire, as an instructor. In 1979 I was appointed to the position of Deputy Head of Fieldstudies at Calshot and fully immersed myself in all the activities and responsibilities of a large multi-activity centre. In 1980 I was fortunate enough to lead a small team of Calshot instructors on an expedition to Tanzania which culminated in a successful ascent of Kilimanjaro. In 1983 I took up the post of Assistant Director/Tutor at The Cranedale Centre and in 1985 was promoted to the position of Director of the Centre. I am a supporter and long standing member of NAFSO, the Geographical Association and the IOL. I am married with 3 grown up children and in my leisure time am a keen gardener and also enjoy walking and birdwatching.
