AE Future Leaders
AE Future Leaders is a new programme from Adventure Education CIC aimed at young people between the ages of 15-19.
Its main focus is to allow young people to discover and develop key skills that will equip and prepare them as they progress from further or higher education in to employment.
Central to this are three key skill areas:
AE Future Leaders delegates will discover and hone these skills through highly practical and engaging programmes delivered through a wide range of activities in a safe and controlled learning environment.
How does it work
AE Future Leaders combines the power of Adventure Therapy with the pragmatism of modern Business Management techniques to provide a personal development opportunity for young people that will build confidence, self-awareness, enthusiasm and effectiveness.
Adventure Therapy is holistic learning and development process through which a learner constructs knowledge, skill, and value from direct experiences. Group processing after each activity is used to bridge the participants' learning experience and facilitate the application of this new knowledge to their specific social, cultural, educational and/or family context. In other words, we place special emphasis on helping participants "bring their growth home" whereby they apply their new insights and experience to their everyday lives.
Making the link then, between the lessons learnt, and the learner's everyday lives is the fundamental difference between adventure therapy and outdoor activities.
When and How is it delivered?
Programmes can be delivered through a single-day intervention or as part of an integrated programme that includes a number of one day modules culminating in a residential.
Through our unique relationships with a number of educational and business partners delegates will experience the excitement of high impact adventure activities such as sailing an ocean going yacht, rock climbing, canoeing, caving and expeditions in remote areas such as Knoydart, Snowdonia or even inside the Arctic Circle, to the more unusual and challenging training simulators in use in the Royal Navy.
