The following programme is specifically tailored to facilitate the transition year activities module for students and their teachers. At B.O.E.T.C.
We have selected our courses to enable T.Y.P. students to develop new skills both personal and technical in an outdoor setting. Throughout the experience the staff at the centre will place equal emphasis on teamwork and on each student identifying their own strengths and weaknesses. By encouraging each participant to overcome challenges the Discovery Programme can reveal hidden talents hitherto unsuspected.
CO-ORDINATORS OF T.Y.P
On completion of our 1,2 and 4 day residential programmes we provide all students with an opportunity to evaluate their experience. A short workbook is available to teachers who wish to encourage students to elaborate on the experience gained.
