We are able to deliver a range of level 2 and 3 accredited courses for volunteers and staff working with young people. See our 'Course Information' page for courses we're currently offering.


Accreditation for young people - 'Starting Fresh' and alternative curriculum

Working alongside our outdoor centre Carlton Lodge we can provide a range of exciting, flexible and accessible courses based on skills development in teambuilding, communication and problem-solving. We are also happy to map your accreditation requirements to our activities and have done this successfully for a range of visitors.

Starting Fresh is available in North Yorkshire and York for young people who may be having difficulties engaging in employment, education or training - for information about the Starting Fresh program visit:www.startingfresh.co.uk

We can provide accredited activities as a member of this partnership - currently we offer:

  • Entry level Teambuilding
