Pro-Active Adventure is a respected and experienced provider of Outdoor Education. The company was formed by Clive Richley, an experienced centre manager and Child Protection social work, and Jon Hilton who is an experienced outdoor instructor and research psychologist. The company was formed in 2000 and has extensive experience of providing residential outdoor breaks to schools, families and youth groups. We cater for age groups from 6 to 60 and all levels of ability. The operational centre’s we work from has a range of accommodation varying from bunk houses to 4 star youth hostels.   When the company first set up there were 2 employees as well as Clive and Jon, now there are over 30. Unlike many large commercial providers who use “In house” trained instructors, we set out to only employ instructors who hold National Governing Body Awards and who have at least 3 years post qualifying experience. This has paid dividends over the years as we have developed a resource with a wide range of activities that are delivered to a very high standard. This means that our instructors can stay with their group for the duration of their stay and not be swapped from one instructor to another who have minimal qualifications. As a result the young people who join us build stronger relationships and have more confidence in their instructors, thus achieving much more than they would have otherwise, something that our customers come back year upon year for.   Over the last couple of years the company has expanded into Europe and Morocco leading a range of expeditions and activity breaks. Crete has been a particular success with customers from international schools going to Crete for personal development weeks and team building events.   Pro-Active Adventure also operates a successful student retention programme. This is were new 6th form students come for a team building programme to start them in their new school career. A much larger spin off has been a three day residential course that help university students settle into the first year of studies. For young people moving from a home environment where study has all been teacher lead. The jump to university in a strange town and different people, and having to follow student lead study, is too much to deal with. This results in massive drop out rates in universities in the first year of study. Our student retention programme has significantly reduced student drop out, and course tutors to comment how their first year students are performing like second year students after their first year. This project has proved massively successful.   Pro-Active Adventure is about to join in a partnership with the YHA to provide activities for them across all their centre’s in Wales. This is a fantastic development and something that both the YHA and Pro-Active are greatly looking forward to.   Scheduled activity programmes run for two, three or four days, or if you prefer we can tailor make programme to suit your needs. Longer programmes are also available on request and of course we now offer fantastic value activity break abroad.
