Glod has five full-time staff and several postgraduate trainees. It also has over 200 volunteer leaders from all over the country who enable the holidays to happen.

Many are teachers and professionals who use holiday time to serve with us as activity leaders, cooks, medics and dorm leaders. Many come back year after year to help and some have been involved since they themselves were at school.

They make up a varied and capable team of fully qualified volunteers.  Normally, each dorm has two or three leaders looking after five young people. Our aim is to provide a ratio of at least one leader for every three young people to ensure that there is thorough care and supervision for all young people on our holidays. 

All our Staff Team and Leaders have an Enhanced Disclosure from the Disclosure and Barring Service (formerly the Criminal Records Bureau) and we take up additional references to ensure their suitability for the work. Click here to read more about our safeguarding policy.
