Outposts – Gold Residential & ILM Level 3 Award in Leadership & Management

Take part in a 5-day outdoor activity programme culminating in an ILM Level 3 in Leadership & Management. Gain an internationally recognised qualification at the same time as doing lots of fun outdoor activities and completing your Gold residential.

Leadership is one of the skills consistently cited as being among the most sought after by higher education institutions and employers alike, so make sure you stand out from the crowd!

The programme is based on a farm in the Quantock Hills in Somerset and consists of a mixture of fun practical leadership tasks and challenges, both in- and outdoors, as well as some short theoretical workshops and the completion of two final assessment papers to review what you have learnt.

Over the week you will:
• Explore leadership styles and what makes a good leader
• Assess and develop your own leadership style
• Understand how to organise and delegate
• How to motivate people to improve performance
• A full range of communications skills
• Negotiation, networking and relationship building

You will spend your week on camp staying in our new wooden lodges in bunk style rooms with all your meals provided for you. Our ‘Bush Camp Shelter’ is a large indoor communal area where your meals are served, and evening activities take place. Sit around the camp fire chatting about the day’s challenges with new friends, gaze at the stars, take part in a quiz, play games, toast marshmallows etc.
