Team and Personal Development

Tailor made to your group’s needs - you know your students better than us!

Based on your guidance, our experienced instructors will aim to tackle core personal and social skills like communication, tolerance and self belief. Our instructors will regularly monitor participant progress; setting and reviewing team goals and encouraging peer evaluations.

This programme uses a range of individual and team based outdoor activities to help students understand their strengths, and then facilitates the group in working together to deliver improved personal and team outcomes. It’s not only what you achieve but how you get there that counts!

Programmes throughout our centres can be single or multiday visits with a range of accommodation and catering options available.

Case study

These courses usually include activities such as Mountain Walking, Caving, Canoeing, Rock Climbing/Abseiling and Gorge Walking. 

We help students develop skills, such as leadership, progressively during each day and build upon learning over multi day programmes. By the end of a five day course students develop characteristics such as effective communication, leadership skills, tolerance and resilience, while becoming more effective at working with others. They enjoy the process and take great satisfaction in recognising their achievements through a focused review process. As a result they grow in confidence as the week progresses.
