The ability to work well as a team involves interacting and communicating with others, understanding goals and priorities, and being able to contribute to a shared purpose.
Participating in team challenges helps children to develop a greater sense of social competency as they learn to listen, interpret and respond to their peers' needs. Team challenges also build negotiation techniques helping children to satisfy their own needs, as well as those of other team members.
Children also learn to reflect on their individual experience versus the experience of the team. Individual Challenges
Setting children individual challenges helps them to learn a great deal about themselves. For example, how they like to work. Some children enjoy working independently while others prefer a more structured environment. Individual challenges also help children to learn whether they work well at their own pace or work better when encouraged by others. Self-awareness, self-motivation, and self-regulation are key capabilities all children should acquire.
Here are some of the organisations we work with:
Skills Clubs at Skill Supply
Skill Clubs provided by Skill Supply are holiday clubs with a difference. They are exciting, challenging, unusual and most of all fun.

They have a fantastic indoor training facility in Manchester with an arena equipped with many different ground level challenges, including an assault course and tyre pit. Oh, and it even has a real prison cell!
