This October half term, discover your potential with VICTA by taking part in a series of fun and exciting individual and group challenges that will test your communication, teamwork, leadership and problem solving skills. You will be supported all week to explore your talents and achievements and get the opportunity to ‘sell yourself’ in an interview scenario at the end.
This promises to be a fun and busy few days focusing on your own personal development as you begin your journey into the world of further education and first time employment opportunities.
An ideal setting to meet other young people of a similar age group, you will also have the opportunity to develop independence and life skills. Staying in a communal yurt village, key parts of the day such as meal times will depend on the group working together to ensure everyone eats each day – no pizza deliveries on speed dial!
- Start your journey of personal development, independence and skill growth
- Develop new and existing skills such as teamwork, communication and problem solving
- Increase your mobility and independence skills
- Gain all of this while having a fun weekend in a supportive, encouraging environment
