Methodologies

The methodological basis of our programs is experiential learning through which the participants of outward Bound move through a sequence of planned experiences that promote the mastery of technical skill, and challenges that give rise to deep reflection and self-knowledge of both their potential and their limits. Throughout the expedition, participants learn from their successes and failures.

The Environments where the outward Bound expeditions and the adventure activities take place are routes that are chosen and made to challenge our participants mentally and physically. Amid the demands of the expedition, students learn to push their boundaries and to dig deep within themselves, where they often find that there is much more to them than they believed.

Each expedition is designed to support the Security physical and emotional security of all involved. Our qualified Instructors use group facilitation methods that foster a group culture that is positive, inclusive and supports the natural world around them generating truely meaningful learning spaces.
