Developing young people into confident leaders of tomorrow.

Make your residential count, by completing our OCN accredited Level 1 Youth Leadership Course with us.

What’s the difference between leadership and youth leadership? How does a leader communicate effectively? What skills and characteristics do you need to be a good leader? How can I put my leadership style into practice?

Time to find out, on this engaging and interactive three-day, two-night course, where you’ll learn about leadership theories, different leadership styles and effective ways to communicate. Then put your learning into practice on our high ropes course, or while orienteering, raft-building or navigating your way through our nightline trail: it’s the perfect all-round experience.

How does it work?

  • Weekend residential (or other two-night stay)
  • A mix of classroom based learning and outdoor activities
  • We provide all of the materials your group will need – workbooks, pens, sticky notes etc.
  • Groups of up to 15 young people
  • This course is aimed for those working at GCSE level C.

How much does it cost?

The cost of the course is £250 per person (with half-price leader places). The cost is all-inclusive and covers: your accommodation (with all bed linen provided), all of your meals freshly prepared onsite for dinner on arrival to lunch on departure, the course itself (including all materials), a range of outdoor activities led by our fully qualified instructor team, your own private lounge area to relax in and access to our onsite facilities for down-time (including tuck shop and games room).

On completion of the course (and after external verification – at a cost of £125 one-off payment), every successful attendee will receive a personalised certificate – this looks great on a CV.
