Angling in a Box


A highly effective programme of personal development designed to give all our young people, especially those in need of further support, the skills and confidence to make positive life choices.


This unique and innovative package allows the successful angling-themed programmes developed by Get Hooked on Fishing to be delivered anywhere in the UK. This is not just about fishing – you will be able to help young people understand that life is full of possibilities.

What’s in the Box?

AIB Modules
Our three-part modular programme has been specifically designed to connect with young people, encouraging them to learn new skills and gain qualifications. Our aim is to improve education and employment prospects and help develop self confidence and self-efficacy. Participants who advance through all three modules are provided with a unique peer mentoring and leadership opportunity that creates a continuum of learning and development within the organisation.

Tutor Resource
Your lesson plans for each of the three modules within one user-friendly document. It includes carefully created notes to ensure quality and consistency for the delivery of our programme throughout the UK. We pride ourselves on connecting with young people and this resource will help you do just that.

Module 1
An accredited introduction to angling. It covers basic fishing as well as aspects of the Countryside Code and Health and Safety. Delivered over two days or weekly over 5-6 weeks through tutor slides and student workbooks, it is a clear and succinct system enabling any coordinator to deliver the programme.

Module 2
GHOF’s introduction to peer mentoring and personal development. Students who have completed Module 1, have shown improved behaviour and an interest in helping others will be selected. Selection is not based on pure angling ability, but on showing a willingness to learn and take part. Topics covered include:


  • Advanced fishing techniques
  • Introduction to peer mentoring
  • Planning coaching sessions
  • Understanding choices
  • Understanding learning styles

Module 2 takes 30-40 hours to deliver and is best delivered weekly. Students will also get an introduction to coaching new Module 1 students.

Module 3
The final piece in the peer mentoring and coaching jigsaw. Delivered on a three/four day residential scheme, the aim is for young people to become fully-fledged peer mentors and coaches. This module includes:

  • Advanced coaching techniques
  • Introduction to carp and predator fishing techniques
  • Project management
  • Designing your own fishery
  • Introduction to goal setting
  • Introduction to life coaching


A young person’s journey through the modules takes between 9 months and a year.
