A recent residential trip to The Outward Bound Trust Eskdale was an outstanding success for our first-year Carr’s Engineering apprentices!

Throughout the week, the apprentices embarked on a journey of enhancing their professional workplace behaviours and motivations necessary for high-consequence roles. They honed their communication skills, mastered effective interpersonal interactions, and gained a profound understanding of the significance of continuous professional development. Additionally, they crafted action plans to aid their personal growth.

They embraced a variety of exhilarating activities, including ghyll scrambling, gorge walking, the punch ball trapeze challenge, and a twilight swim in the tarn. As the week unfolded, the agenda expanded to include compelling pursuits like fell walking, an immersive overnight wild camp, and the technical construction of a river-spanning bridge. Each adventure served as a testament to their courage and unwavering determination. They showed what it means to push boundaries, work as a team, and thrive in high-stakes situations – qualities that we have no doubt will serve them well in their future careers.

We extend our heartfelt appreciation to The Outward Bound Trust for delivering such an exceptional experience. Their commitment to fostering both personal and professional growth shines through in every activity and interaction.
