Why Trailblazer?

In outdoor learning situations young people can often achieve more than they may be capable of in more traditional learning environments. Trailblazer can support you in providing exciting opportunities that engage young people and enhance learning.

Our current Trailblazer schools are reaping the benefits of the scheme in many ways and some of their comments are below.

SUPPORTS PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT

'... it has a very positive affect on the behaviour of those who find classroom life difficult...'

INCREASED MOTIVATION

'... we see children in a different light when they are muddy, laughing, engaged and clearly happy..'

ENJOYING LEARNING
