What we do
This programme is run by Challenge & Adventure in partnership with HTP Apprenticeship College.
It is a full time education course for young people aged between 16 and 18 years old. The programme is designed for those who are not exactly sure what they want to do next and perhaps are not yet ready for a full time college course or employment.
These are aimed primarily at young people aged from 12- 16 years old who are referred to us by agencies on the Isle of Wight. Many lack confidence and have low self-esteem; some have difficulties engaging with school; and some are at risk of getting into trouble with the authorities.
Challenge & Adventure invites all young people who complete a ‘Challenge’ course with us to remain engaged with the charity.
Those aged 14+ can choose to work towards their Duke of Edinburgh’s Award with Challenge & Adventure
