First Name

Our Leader In Training programme is perfect ideal for young people aged 15-16, who are looking to develop the skills and experience to be successful as they move into leadership roles at home, school, or the community. It uses Fairthorne Manor’s best loved activities to develop and inspire young people in key leadership skills, developing teamwork, group dynamics, conflict resolution and communication.


What will they do?

The week will begin with team building and self-discovery exercises, taking advantage of the huge range of activities Fairthorne Manor has to offer, enabling young people to recognise their true potential. They will receive training in practical skills such as CPR and it is expected that all those who complete the programme will gain the Young Leader Award from Sports Leaders.  Participants will be supported in developing awareness around child protection and safeguarding and finally get the chance to put the newly learnt skills into practice.
