Our one day team building training session provides participants the opportunity to utilise skills and attributes that they may not realised they had.  Developing personal skills and qualities such as team work, problem solving, organisation and taking on leadership roles the participants are able to experience situations and tasks that will motivate them throughout the day. 

These transferable skills not only contribute to the future economic well being of the students but also enable students to become more self aware of the types of skills and qualities that will be required for whatever next steps they are to take in their futures.

Delivered workshop style and using both industry and enterprise activities and tasks, students will leave the day with a clear understanding of not only what personal and social skills they possess but also the significance of these skills for their future career options.

The session can be used as preparation for work experience, part of enterprise activities, year 7 induction, 6th form induction week or as part of a school/college personal development of young people.
