Bring on the next challenge

Students are keen to tackle harder challenges after succeeding in a two-day outdoor course.

Young people from Collyer’s college in Horsham completed a challenging expedition in the New Forest.

The students are completing the BTEC Level 2 Diploma in Sport for Outdoor Activities. 

Learners are taught about the values of outdoor education and learn the practical skills and rules relating to a range of outdoor activities, including: mountain biking and orienteering alongside units in anatomy and physiology, sports psychology and sports training. 

James Gordon, Collyer’s Head of Faculty for Business, Sport and Social Sciences said: “We are incredibly proud of these talented students, who have demonstrated so much potential. They adapted quickly and were keen to learn new skills and adapt to the challenge over the two days. I’m delighted that 80% of the group have applied to return to Collyer’s next year to complete Advanced or Level 3 equivalent qualifications.”

For the New Forest trip students were asked to plan, then navigate, a 30 kilometre route independently.
