Event: Engaging THE DISENGAGED
Engaging the Disengaged: Using authentic outdoor adventure to extend the boundaries of learning
As professionals working directly with young people in the education setting, you've probably experienced a shift over recent years in behaviour, attitude and expectations.
Aligned with this, there's also been a notable change with parents; an increase in parental anxiety and an altered viewpoint around school attendance.
Are you ready to tackle these growing challenges with strategies to meet your students and parents' changing needs and expectations?
Join us for a working lunch to network, discuss current challenges and explore what an outcome-driven programme could look like.
Hear first-hand from the Meridian Trust, Outward Bound and young people who have experienced an outdoor residential.
- The Meridian Trust – The strategies the Trust uses to extend the boundaries of learning.
- Outward Bound - Outward Bound pedagogy and the impact of immersive wild adventures.
- Cambridge Outdoor Education Advisor - Advice on planning high-quality outdoor education.
- Students – Young people from Meridian Trust schools who attended an Outward Bound residential in 2023.

ENGAGE AND DEVELOP CHALLENGING AND DISADVANTAGED STUDENTS
Jon Spears, Assistant Principal at Tamworth Enterprise College in Staffordshire, talks about how his school uses Pupil Premium to support disengaged and disadvantaged pupils through learning in the wild.
We use the power of learning and adventures in the wild to overcome them all. No two Outward Bound courses are the same. Your programme is made to order depending on the learning needs of the group.
