Educating and developing young people is at the heart of what we do so we are pleased to be able to offer your group our own in-house Leadership through Adventure Award.
Now available at 4 levels, we have a programme for everyone from the P7 transitional pupils through to (and beyond) the S6 students moving on to the next stage in their life.
This level is a great introduction to basic leadership and team working skills. Pupils who are entering a transitional time in their school education will take part in a series of challenges and adventure activities with their instructor who will encourage decision making and taking responsibility. After the activity the instructor will review and reflect with the group who will then begin to understand which decisions worked and which had a less positive outcome.
Level 1 is now accredited by Sports Leaders as being a Young Leaders Award.

Level 2 will begin to develop the fundamentals of team building, leadership and employability through a multi activity programme. Our aim is that pupils will develop into more rounded individuals with a better awareness of the consequences of our actions and of their leadership and team work in challenging situations. Reviewing, discussion and reflection are keys parts of this level.

For S5-6 pupils and young apprentices, the Intensive level includes a series of challenges over a 2-3 day period with a final 18 hour challenge. Objectives will be set and the team will receive guidance and instruction to get the most from the time they spend together. Abernethy Ardeonaig use their own 'Largesse' challenge as the finale to the week and the other Abernethy centres also have their own tailor made challenges. This level clearly demonstrates the leadership strengths, teamwork skills and employoyability of everyone involved.

Aimed at apprentices and undergraduates, this final level of our award is a challenging programme which incorporates the 'Milk Tray' exercise. Instructor-led problem solving and using the natural environment to stretch and challenge participants is the key with this level.
