Courses

All activities are overseen by the management team on a daily basis. Each programme is individually designed and visiting staff are invited to make contact before their visit to discuss aims and preferences. Each course broadly focuses on sound outdoor educational principles but visiting staff will also want to introduce their own particular aims for their students which are likely to be complimentary in nature. The aim is to create as many positive learning experiences as the course length permits.

Instructors make use of many different venues for different venues for different outdoor activities. To use the best ones Centre minibuses are used for travel. Venues are chosen taking into account the age, experience and needs of the students, group dynamics and anticipated learning outcomes. Courses are also flexible to account for changes in the weather, other local conditions and logistics.

Students are encouraged to take an active role during their stay at Plas Pencelli. They are given a number of responsibilities. These include making packed lunches, clearing up after meals, house duties, organizing group lunch crates and flasks and helping prepare and put away group activity.
