Oswestry, United Kingdom, February 15, 2018 — Eleven first and second year students from North Shropshire Collegeâ€™s (NSC) Uniformed Public Service (UPS) course went on a week-long visit to the Outward Bound Centre at Aberdovey recently. The week was designed to enable the students to advance their leadership skills and work on their team-working skills through a series of different challenges, including climbing a wall as a team and taking on “Jacobs Ladder.” The students then put their climbing skills to good use climbing the slabs above Barmouth, and walking up Cadair Idris, where they set up a camp for the evening before walking 12 kilometres back to the centre. The Students then enjoyed an exciting end to the week, where they were set a team challenge to build their own raft and paddle down the river to the local water sports centre, followed by a pier jump into the sea.
Marie Davis, Sport Lecturer at NSC who accompanied the students on the trip comments, â€œIt was a fantastic week, and we were delighted to have such an enthusiastic group of students. It was a pleasure to watch them develop their leadership skills, and to see them achieve so much personally throughout the week, and I hope that they will put these skills to good use during their time with us at NSC and in the workplace after they finish their studies.â€�
