learning through doing
We believe that through coaching and support and by equipping them with the right skills young people can better understand and manage the choices they make and the approaches that they take.
The best place to understand what it means to work well in a team is to experience being part of a team. Below details various practical team exercises that effectively help to build team. Our team activities are structured and designed in such a way to enable strong relationships to be established, laying a foundation to be able to work through conflict within different contexts and understanding personality types.
Our enrichment days are proven to be effective in:
- Providing a fun and enjoyable learning experience
- Developing positive friendships (effective in deepening relationships within year group)
- Providing an experience in how working well with others plays a vital role in our lives, relationships and wellbeing
- Giving a rich leadership experience: Facing decisions and outcomes and working through them, encouraging the taking responsibility over their choices
- Promoting opportunities for natural abilities, talents and skills to emerge and be utilised
