Leading the Way: Elevating Our Expeditions Through Ongoing Leader Development

Embarking on a trip with True Adventure isn’t just about checking off destinations from a list; it’s a profound voyage of exploration and growth for students, expanding their horizons and challenging comfort zones. At the heart of our expeditions are our leaders—more than guides, they’re mentors, role models, and champions of exploration. We’re dedicated to continually enhancing their skills through ongoing development, ensuring not only the safety and well-being of our students but also the quality of our expeditions.

Safety Embedded in Every Step of Our Journey

The safety and well-being of students is and always will be our number one priority. Our leaders undergo rigorous, continuous training in critical areas such as water safety, first aid, and group management, this weekend we had leaders out in Wales taking part in the National Water Safety Management Programme Level 2 Coastal and Inland Awards and the Mountain Leader – Rope Refresher day course. These courses have been accredited by the RLSS and also Mountain Training Association as CPD courses with full-day credits. It’s also a fantastic opportunity for our leaders to come together and not only have a huge amount of fun on the course but also share their ideas and knowledge with each other. 

Our Commitment to Excellence

We want to ensure that we are employing the most qualified and all-rounded expedition leaders for our teams so that students and teachers alike can get the most out of an expedition with us. 

We understand that the success of our company hinges on the quality of our leaders and the experiences they provide. By investing in their professional development, we ensure that our expedition leaders stand out for the right reasons – their expertise, professionalism, and the educational value they deliver.

In addition to raising the bar for quality and safety, our investment in highly trained expedition leaders reflects our values as an organisation. We believe in empowering our leaders to be lifelong learners and compassionate mentors. By providing them with the tools and resources they need to succeed, we cultivate a culture of excellence, innovation, and integrity that permeates every aspect of our company.
