Agriculture students focus on team building skills during rock climbing trip

The Level 3 group has been working around the clock, not just for the two weekends that the Lackham campus opens its door to the public for lambing, but since the beginning of the year, preparing for the lambing season.

Jane Davies, agricultural lecturer at Lackham, said: “Outdoor activities push even the most confident student out of their comfort zone and it is here where they develop the skills needed to work together and support each other to complete the tasks in front of them – an invaluable employment skill.”

The students visited Undercover Rock in Bristol and all said they had a fantastic time and would like to do it again.

Lauren Pocock, Sports and Development Officer at the college, said: “Jane and I organised the trip for students so that they could enjoy some down time before hitting their really busy period.

“It was also a way of focussing on teamwork, communication and other skills that will help make the more employable.

“The experience was a success as all the students who took part walked away enthusiastic to continue the activity and we hope that future funding may be available to fund more rock climbing sessions for agriculture students.”
