Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr B. Christeller

This is a Unit Standards course, which is designed to offer students a wide range of skills in outdoor pursuits and outdoor recreation and at the same time gain accreditation for their achievements within the National Qualifications Framework. Students with a strong interest in the outdoors are able to continue their studies and work towards a certificate in Outdoor Recreation at a range of institutions after the completion of this course.

A field trip component is built into the course which is necessary to develop and apply the skills and knowledge learnt in class and for assessment purposes.

Students will participate in modules that include: group activities under the title of adventure based learning, mountain biking, tramping, outdoor navigation, first aid, rock climbing, and kayaking.
