Youth Engagement

Mark Hill is a Sergeant Major with the British Army who is delivering Practical Leadership and Teambuilding (PLT) Activities with our students over the course of the academic year.

The activities are delivered outside of the classroom and are a great kinaesthetic hands-on learning experience for young people, skills that are employer friendly. They are intended to empower the attendees through hands-on, outside the classroom activity, combining learning-to-do, adventure, challenges and in a new military environment. The emphasis is on teamwork, personal development, problem solving and communication.

The first activity which took place on Friday 13th October was delivered to 15 students in Year 9 and focused on students demonstrating leadership and teamwork skills to complete a variety of physical activities.

Mark thought the session went well, our young people worked hard, well done to all.
