We are an established Educational organisation that provides schools and other businesses with the highest quality Outdoor Adventure Education and Activities.
The Director first started 30 years ago as a full time Outdoor Education Teacher in a secondary school setting, offering Outdoor Education and residential experiences for students. After enjoying several successful years, he went on to work for Wolverhampton City Council, Local Education Authority, attached to the Psychology Service/Children’s Services. In this role he managed the provision of providing Outdoor Education to schools across the city for referred students. This included specific long courses for vulnerable students to develop their mental toughness, resilience and self-esteem.
‘The accomplishments that young people achieve through Outdoor Education is fundamental to their development’ Mike Pugh, Director.
EDGE-ucation continues to offer this valuable service to schools and organisations providing high quality Outdoor Education. We believe in the power that outdoor activities provide. We continue to ensure that our vision of real adventure is at the forefront of delivery.
EDGE-ucation has held the AALA award for over 15 years. This is an HSE requirement for providers, designed to assist schools and local authorities to identify organisations that provide high quality experiences and manage safety effectively. EDGE-ucation holds a licence to deliver an extensive list of Outdoor and Adventurous Activities.
The AALA licence means that teachers can be confident in the quality and safety of educational provision and our risk management procedures. Local Authority members request that teachers look for this when planning educational visits and confirms that red tape can be reduced.
Over the past 15 years, EDGE-ucation Outdoors has added to this provision by offering skills, training and qualification courses.
Our staff have the skills, qualifications and experience to deliver the programmes in an inspirational and fun way, which in turn motivates and engages your students.
