The Adventure Learning Foundation was formed in 2012 as a partnership between Longridge Activity Centre in Marlow and Bucks County Council, to provide support services for not for profit organisations that are working with young people, to allow the organisations to focus on what they do best with the comfort that their bookings, marketing, finance and other support services are being done brilliantly by expertise that far exceeds what individual budgets could afford.
As a charity that invests heavily in young people’s development the next stage of our evolution is to create our own college that will provide full time education to young people aged 16+ over 2-years that will enable them to gain qualifications and vocational training in areas such as activity coaching, grounds keeping, catering and hospitality. With the support of the Berkeley Foundation, we aim to open our doors to our first pupils September 2014.
Help us Make a Difference
We are only able to provide effective vocational training, education and apprenticeships for young people because of the wonderful financial support we receive from trusts, companies and individuals.
If you would like to work with us, please in the first instance contact our CEO, Amanda Foister, who will be delighted to share with you our ambitious plans and discuss how you can help.
Across all our sites we can offer a number of educational packages – all of which have very strong links to the new National Curriculum. They range from Forest School, field studies and environmental education to bushcraft and outward bound activities, with every one of them having the possibility of being adapted to suit your required level.
These packages have been developed using the breadth of expertise within our educational team and through consultation from visiting teachers.
