“May I take this opportunity to thank you and your outstanding team for the superb three days you planned for us here at Oldbury Academy. The feedback I have had from staff, students, and even parents has been overwhelmingly positive and we are very grateful. Can you please pass this onto the guys that were with us, they are a credit to your organisation and I’m sure we’ll work again soon”

Programme 3

For smaller groups where there is a specific focus or desired outcomes

Effective facilitation of the activities by our most senior facilitators makes improved performance so explicit that once learning groups understand how they achieved this they can use their knowledge as a reference point for improved performance in specific areas of their lives. Transference of these skills to different learning environments is highlighted throughout.

“My group has a wide range of physical and learning challenges, and I was impressed by the accommodating yet absolutely professional way in which all of our activities were handled. Our less physically able learners were delighted to be able to participate in all activities in the same way as their able peers, and as such your facility provided an ideal and inclusive experience. Thanks indeed for an extremely enjoyable and highly valuable experience for all”
