The Outdoor Learning Academy. Mountaineering training day 11 and 12.

We have been out in Glencoe with the trainees from the Outdoor Learning Academy. We started working with these young trainees from Strive Adventure back in November. Starting in some dreadful weather it was a very fitting way to finish an amazing 12 days of outdoor learning with the team in glourious conditions. The trainees have summer hill walked, attended a residentail on Mull at Tavool House Outdoor Centre, winter walked, learnt hill based navigation, scrambled, rock climbed, and ascended some great peaks and climbs. To finish on two Glencoe classic mountain routes was well deserved. Two big mountain days in contrasting conditions and requiring all the skills the students have learnt during their time with us. We hope to repeat the Outdoor Learning Academy starting autumn 2015.

 If anyone has or knows of a group of trainees, students or apprenticies keen to challenge themslves and develop through outdoor learning then please share and spread the word. 

Thanks guys it has been a pleasure working with you.
