Transition Year Programme

Transition Year Programme

The following programme is specifically tailored to facilitate an activity-based module for transition year 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 one and two-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.

The following are sample programmes which have been successful to date. We will

however gladly work with the co-ordinators to design a package more suitable to your

needs.
