General Education residential success

General Education students recently went on a residential trip to PGL in Caythorpe, Lincolnshire. The annual trip took place from the 11th to 15th May and students raised money to enable them to experience the activities - many of which they may never have done before.

During the week, students completed 13 activities including raft building, archery and abseiling. Patience was the key to many of the activities that saw students separated into two groups and support each other to overcome common fears like water and heights. Each group battled against strong winds on the high ropes after some encouragement from the activity instructors. 

The trip was organised by John Briers, Course Leader for Rural Skills, who commented: "The students were all fabulous. We've been going on trips like this for 12 years and this year they really gave it everything. They were a credit to the College".

The whole week was considered a success due to the students for their willingness to take part in each activity and being extremely supportive of each other.

We offer a range of courses for General Education students, including Skills for Independence and Work, Construction Skills, sports and land-based studies. Find out more or contact us: (01604) 491131.
