Harrogate College’s Level 3 Early Years students regularly experience the great outdoors and learn how to use it as an aid to teaching and learning with very young children.
Each October, the students are taken on a residential trip to Peak Pursuits in the Peak District, where they have the opportunity to make new friends and to really push themselves into doing activities they may feel quite nervous doing.
The trip helps them to make the link between encouraging children in a supportive role rather than missing out on a valuable learning experience.
Students take part in abseiling, raft building, a night walk and archery over a two day period. With the expert help of qualified instructors, students achieve huge personal goals gaining self-confidence and feeling proud of their achievements.
