Edale Residential


As part of our training courses offered, we asked the students to take part in a residential trip to Edale Activity Centre in the Peak District during September 2012.

Here, they took part in activities such as rock climbing, abseiling, bike riding and raft building to help them build confidence, self esteem and work as a team to complete tasks.  It taught them how to overcome fears, trust each other and solve problems effectively.  Read what our students thought of the trip, the diary of the residential and see the pictures of the action in the gallery!

“It was good as we got away for a bit and it gave us space. We all worked together well” – Scott

“It was really good.  I overcame my fear of heights and abseiling was my favourite activity.  We learnt how to trust each other” – Jemma

“I had a sense of achievement especially with the abseil.  The company was really good” – Keah

“It was good fun to do.  The rock climbing was the best as I was sick at it!  I mastered all 4 climbs.  It was a nice, quiet, chill out place” – Luke

“I couldn’t join in everything as I am pregnant but I still enjoyed it.  I learnt how to fall off a bike!  But I would like to go again” – Bella

“I learnt new skills and I conquered my fear of heights!” – Jamie-Leigh

“It was enjoyable, learning new skills and working together as a team” – Nicole
