The balance of academic/outdoor activity is dependent on each learner's capability.

Your IEP will take the lead in managing the learner's progress and will support your development whilst you assist them in learning delivery. Our aim is that you'll follow in their footsteps
Outside term time you'll be involved in planning and may be deployed to one of Peak's outdoor activity centres to support a wide range of sporting activities.
