Further & Higher Education
We recognise that colleges and universities deliver a high quality of education across a broad expanse of academic and vocational subjects. Your staff are the experts in your field; we are happy to provide activities that link to your subject delivery through working alongside your staff to develop content that compliments your course syllabus and integrates outdoor learning seamlessly into your programme.
For sports and outdoor programmes, we can offer progressive activity sessions working on skill acquisition in climbing, canoeing, archery, hill walking and expedition skills. For climbing and canoeing these can be based on the syllabi for the National Indoor Climbing Award Scheme (NICAS) and the British Canoeing Star Awards, allowing students to gain nationally recognised qualifications in the sports. We also offer U-Canoe Unleashed sessions, which allow pupils to take control of their learning and develop their skills through choosing and leading their own activities from the U-Canoe kit under the supervision of our qualified coaches.
Richard Pell, Head of P.E. Abington High School
The students had a great time and I definitely think it was an enriched learning experience. I was extremely impressed with the welcome we felt and the quality of instruction given.
A programme of outdoor activities that help young people develop skills to help them in the world of work, from improving confidence at job interviews to handling criticism from employers and developing self appraisal skills.
This is an ideal program for encouraging young people to take responsibility for themselves and is therefore ideal for assisting pupils to prepare for a change such as the transition from one school to another.
