Meaningful learning that makes a real difference to people’s lives

Each Outward Bound course is a journey of discovery. We challenge young people to reach beyond their comfort zones and change the way they think and feel about themselves. We help them to build personal, social and emotional skills that they will use for the rest of their lives. Above all, our goal is to foster a sense that anything is possible.

Our Courses

Working closely with schools, colleges, universities and corporate training institutes we deliver two levels of courses, one targeting young people aged 14-18 years, called Skills for Life, and the other aimed at older participants about to enter the workplace, called Next Generation, which has a clear focus on enhancing employability, and basic work ethics, attitudes and behaviours.


Our Skills for Life courses, that are focused on young people in school, aim to change how young people think about themselves and their lives by building the personal, social and emotional skills at a critical time in their education. Read More.


Our intensive Next Generation course targets young people in higher education, job seekers or people in their early years of employment, and has a focus on employability issues, skill-set evaluation, basic work ethics and action planning. Read More.
