Further Education

We believe that bringing young people from all walks of life together for outdoor activities and challenges, can enhance their personal development and their ability to assimilate new facts when beginning further education.

The Kepplewray Centre can, working in partnership with Further Education Establishments, provide an opportunity for young people to expand their horizons, develop their communication skills and, perhaps more importantly, learn to work together as part of a new team. At the same time they will enhance their social skills and have fun.

Ahead of a visit to Kepplewray our instructors are happy to liaise with you to create an experience that can support the students in their academic studies.
