3 Core Objectives

All Higher Ground programmes have at their core three fundamental objectives; to develop:

1. Confident individuals

As Confident Individuals participants will develop physical competence and mental strength, with a strong self-image and identity. Students are encouraged and given the opportunity to take well-managed risks, helping them to develop their self-image and goal setting abilities.

2. Life-long learners

As Life-long Learners participants will be able to work more creatively and resourcefully, solving problems and using their initiative. As our programmes use an experiential methodology, student reflection will be central to the learning process.

3. Responsible global citizens

Striving towards being Responsible Global Citizens participants will further understand the needs of others and display compassion whilst caring for themselves, others and the environment.

Whether it is a 5-day expedition or a 28-day residential programme Higher Ground aims to help participants understand how they can reach their potential. We believe that the use of the outdoor environment and learning through direct experience with activities and other people can create the opportunity for participants to better understand their physical, emotional and creative potential.
