Outposts has years of experience with team-building activities for schools and groups to develop skills such a communication, confidence, empathy, listening and team-work. When planning your day we work closely with you to make absolutely sure we get the right mix of activities and challenges to suit your objectives.
We have created three levels as a guide; you’ll need to choose one that you think is most appropriate for your school or group. We then tailor the types of team-building activities you will undertake and the learning outcomes for your day.
Level 1 - younger age groups - primary
Level 2 - early to mid secondary
Level 3 - GCSE and A-Level year groups
We have identified some key areas that our team-building days can focus on. This list is not exhaustive so if there is something you don’t see, please do ask. These will help us guide the development of your bespoke day to make sure you are getting exactly what you need. Perhaps it’s very focused or maybe it is just about having fun.
We work on a reflective learning model which means that all the tasks we use encourage participants to consider and reflect upon their behaviour in a group. We will also work with you to ensure the outcomes align with any specific areas of the curriculum you wish to focus on. The tasks are broken down as follows:
Briefing and planning:
Staying on task:
Reflect and debrief:
"The children all look forward to their day of activities, love the whole set-up, great instructors and always feel they want to stay longer. By the end of the day, even children who have tended to be ‘loners’ are part of the team and listening skills improve hugely."
Our team-building days can either take place at our purpose-built African style Bush Camp complete with tasks set in our 70 acre Somerset site in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty or we can come to you. The types of tasks available will vary depending on the location.
