Recruitment tools

Here are some other ideas that we've been told can help with recruitment:

  • Get previous course participants in your school to give a presentation
  • Get them to join our Facebook group so that they can see photos from other participants and their feedback – facebook.com/theoutwardboundtrust
  • Ask your regional education account executive to come into the school and give a presentation to your pupils
  • Print out the 'Young Person's FAQs' that should helpfully clear up any concerns.

Below are a number of videos that you can use to show your young people what an Outward Bound course is like and its impact. Why not start with our latest video, which really gives a flavour of a course and the environments we operate in.
