Clear communication skills are vital in any workplace industry and young people need to learn this skill early on. The ability to communicate your ideas and points of view, on a coherent and concise fashion will make you stand out from the crowd. By participating in Essex Outdoors activities your students will develop their ability to communicate successfully in a variety of different situations, including being able to accurately and successfully put across their thoughts and ideas in higher pressured environments.

People will naturally take on different roles when working in a team. Successful team work is an essential life skill; it is important to acknowledge that there are many different types of successful team work and that throughout their lives, young people will have to take on different roles. Participating in Essex Outdoors activities will allow your students to experience and excel in a range of different roles within a team.

Problems pop up every day and having the ability to tackle these challenges face on is very important. Through the development of a wide range of activities that can be differentiated for a variety of levels, Essex Outdoors has specifically designed programmes that encourage the development of problem solving skill sets in young people.

We live in a world where young peoples’ exposure to risk can often be over managed; hindering their ability to learn how to manage risk correctly and ultimately leading to some young people being unable to make good judgement calls. This issue has been addressed in the new Ofsted criteria, and schools are now being encouraged to increase young peoples’ exposure to risk. The activities at Essex Outdoors are designed to expose young people to controlled risks; where they are able to safely ascertain what should and shouldn’t be done and how to successfully reach the goal that they require.
