People have shared with us that committing to something challenging, like an assessment, can give you the motivation you need to do it. So we are building some commitment in by asking you to pay a deposit of £500. Upon completion of the leadership programme The Outward Bound Trust will return this to you by paying for the assessment(s) you are working towards in the 12 months following the course (up to £500). This is non-refundable. If you change your mind about joining before the course, or decide it is not for you once starting, we will reinvest the money into development of the programme. If finding the deposit is a financial barrier, please contact us to find out more about means tested bursary funding which may be made available. As this is new to us, we would also ask that you participate in any evaluation and provide feedback to support us in developing the offer further.
