Sessions to develop improved English and Maths skills - and help gappies to build their confidence.
Each group of ten young people is supported by their own Skipper (Project Lead) and First Mate (Welfare Officer), who are there to provide support, structure and encouragement throughout the programme.
As leaders in their field, Outward Bound provides unrivalled, supported challenges and adventures that stretch limits and discover potential.
Sessions delivered by the local Further Education college build confidence in English and Maths skills, working towards attainment of at least GSCE grade C in each subject.
A whole range of experiences builds confidence and broadens horizons: from days out exploring the local area to health and nutrition workshops, and even tea with the Mayor.
Important first days comprise a coaching course to answer the questions ‘Who am I? What do I want? How am I going to get it?’
