YOUNG people looking to develop their skills and prepare for employment or college have recently completed a four week Opt In+ Summer Programme.

The activities undertaken were designed to support the students to develop the necessary skills to succeed in their future.

Team building, problem solving, confidence building and a range of vocational tasters were offered, to give students an opportunity to try various subjects.

Learning took place outside the classroom through a series of trips and visits.

This included an orienteering team challenge, a trip to the Blue Reef Aquarium alongside a rock pool experience and a visit to Wilderness Wood, where the students learnt survival skills such as fire and shelter making.
