Skills for Employability, Training & Personal Development
Each unit of the Certificate is aimed at different elements of employment and personal development. Based on a reflective practice the course is delivered and assessed in a variety of practical and class-based methods, based around an individual’s needs.
As the main aim of the Adventure Plus Programme, the Certificate develops skills relating to employment: building self-confidence with presentation skills, providing the tools for gaining employment, including job-seeking skills, and embedding teamwork into everything we do.
Personal development is a pivotal part of the Certificate which is promoted through emotional intelligence, healthy eating and instilling a habit of “Plan-Do-Review” – a skill with wide-reaching potential beyond the course.
As a one-year course for post-16 education, Adventure Plus provides a unique opportunity to push young people outside their comfort zones in order to grow. This growth happens when they are exposed to the managed risk and challenging situations created with our adventurous activities.
