To succeed in today’s incredibly complex world you need more than an education. You need personal, social and emotional skills that allow you to believe in yourself, work successfully in a team and lead others. These skills are learned from overcoming incredibly personal challenges. Young people are often unable to learn these lessons from their parents, at school or in the office.
The classic Outward Bound expedition helps you discover your true potential. We aim to develop the competencies and character traits to help you succeed in school, work and life. We will take you on an adventure you will never forget. You will be challenged and inspired to action, meet awesome people and see beautiful places. You will realise that you are capable of so much more than you ever thought possible. You will learn:
- The ability to effectively manage yourself, and make good choices
- Creativity and problem solving ability
- Critical thinking
- Ability to express yourself and communicate effectively
- Emotional intelligence
