Two of Acres apprentices, Joe and Sam recently took part in an outward bound event. The event, run by The Outward Bound Trust was part of the Toyota Apprentice Scheme designed to help participants learn a deeper appreciation of the balance between risk, reward and responsibility, taking place in a natural environment away from distractions or modern amenities.
The Outward Bound Trust is an educational charity that runs adventurous and challenging outdoor learning programmes that equip young people with valuable skills for education, work and life, helping attendees become more confident, more effective and more capable in the workplace.
Both apprentices received some great feedback from the trainers showing good levels of confidence and a willingness to cooperate and collaborate to achieve goals set during each activity.
We want to congratulate Joe and Sam on their efforts during the event and look forward to seeing some of the things they have learnt put into action during their time at Acres.
