Right Honorable Tony Blair, commenting on the campaign launch as UK Prime Minister: 'Everything we do in our everyday activity, in our work and leisure involves some element of risk. Risk is an inescapable part of our lives. The challenge for all of us, both within and outside Government is to manage risk in a way which gives us the necessary protection we need without constraining what we do beyond a level that is justified. I very much welcome your conference today as a vital contribution to this debate. I hope that you will enjoy what I am sure will be a very stimulating and productive'.

Adventure Professionals again on the agenda PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 29 August 2017
As the AALA progresses with the work of UKAIG, the field again has an opportunity to claim its full professional status according to common sense and social research theory. This research underpins the statement defining what a professional is (full information below).  
 
Whilst various requirements exist such as code of ethics, body of knowledge, training structure, defined period of experience, etc., the most vital is that there is public trust and reassurance derived from quality insurance owned and delivered through the professional body of the professionals themselves, and not any external quality assurance group however competent that group is. Below, and over the next days we invite discussion around what might be.

 "A profession is a disciplined group of individuals who adhere to ethical standards and who hold themselves out as, and are accepted by the public as possessing special knowledge and skills in a widely recognised body of learning derived from research, education and training at a high level, and who are prepared to apply this knowledge and exercise these skills in the interest of others. It is inherent in the definition of a profession that a code of ethics governs the activities of each profession. Such codes require behaviour and practice beyond the personal moral obligations of an individual. They define and demand high standards of behaviour in respect to the services provided to the public and in dealing with professional colleagues. Further, these codes are enforced by the profession and are acknowledged and accepted by the community."
