What Students learn
Students in our Outdoor Leadership programme will spend their afternoons taking part in lessons that will cover a wide range of activities from sailing to raft building and team-building exercises.
Each of the lessons has been designed with a specific goal in mind, but the strong theme throughout this course will be to develop communication skills, help students learn to work as an effective part of a team and to build their self-confidence and leadership abilities.
The experience that will be gained during this summer school programme will last far beyond the three weeks at ISSOS and will give students skills that they can apply to many different areas of their life.
