Learning experiences in

are designed to link decisions, actions and consequences.
Calculated risk-taking, task requirements, and people
considerations all form part of the training experience.
In our unique training situation, the results of team decisions are immediate, clear and
personally relevant. Essential organisational tasks - such as meal preparation
- can be part of the training process. Success is important for the entire
group. The insights and understanding are
meaningful and long lasting.
Team games and challenge activities are used to highlight topics,
but real situations in this unusual environment have proven more effective to
develop new patterns of group interaction
and personal involvement.

Our training areas are normally remote and challenging. The
natural environment presents realistic problem-solving
situations, and the opportunity to see team issues more
clearly, without distractions. Review and discussion ensures
experiences are related back to the real work setting.
Implementing sound safety practices using equipment which
meets recognised international standards is an integral
part of the training experience.
Adventure is a central ingredient of the learning process. An adventure
is a step into the unknown. Therefore the written programme cannot possibly
contain all the details; that would
not be an adventure. The adventure in our programmes creates productive learning experiences.
Our Team Development Programmes are directed by Allan
Riches; a professional educator (B.Ed., M.Ed.Admin., MACE,
AAIF.) with the relevant academic and
practical qualifications, and 25 years experience
designing and conducting adventure based wilderness training.
Allan helped established Outward Bound centres in a number of
countries, and consulted with users and standards
organisations in the testing, selection and design
of safety equipment for adventurous training. He developed
Risk Management procedures for a number of adventure
based training organisations and instigated major changes in
the engineering and construction of adventure training
activities and apparatus throughout the Asia Pacific region.
As a Churchill Fellow he visited forty adventure based
training organisations in North America and Europe to learn
their training and safety practices.
