Our Vision

Our mission:
‘Skills For Life’

Our mission is to provide realistic and immersive learning experiences to equip visitors with the skills, knowledge and confidence to live active, fulfilling and safer lives in stronger communities.

Our objectives

Through experiential education in realistic scenarios we aim to:-

  • Increase awareness of safety and develop key life skills
  • Encourage visitors to develop personal confidence and to think for themselves
  • Promote teamwork and shared values
  • Encourage safer, healthier and more active lifestyles

Our principles

Our new strategy for growth from 2017 adopts the following principles:

  • Equality and diversity
  • Focus provision on our safety villages
  • Utilise experiential learning techniques
  • Meet the needs of all learners
  • Focus on positive behavioural change rather than shock tactics or danger itself
  • Use technology appropriately
  • Seek value for money rather than simply the cheapest deal
