Maximising impact and learning outcomes at Club Correze
There is no doubt that your young people will have fun at Club Correze, whatever activities they take part in.
However as LOtC Quality Badge holders, we believe that your residential at Club Correze can have numerous benefits to the education and personal development of young people, and that these can be maximised by taking time to consider what you would like to achieve and planning the programme with your objectives in mind.
The impact of residential experiences for young people can include:
- Personal development and character outcomes such as resilience, self-confidence, leadership, communication & problem solving.
- Social, moral, cultural & spiritual development (SMCS) outcomes such as learning about & experiencing a different culture, learning a new language and meeting people from a different social environment to their own day to day lives.
- Physical & mental health benefits: taking part in activities in outdoors results in a sense of awe wonder and an appreciation the natural environment. Young people often discover new interests and passions which can result in a long-term interest in healthy physical recreation activities.
- Improved relationships with their peers and their teachers, which can have a transformational impact back at school.
- Improved engagement in and attitudes to learning. Young people will learn in new ways and learn to take managed risks, bounce back from failure and overcome their fears – skills they will take back to school.
- Improved academic achievement: all of the above outcomes will help raise achievement but we can also provide memorable subject specific learning opportunities – for example geography, history and modern languages which will improve subject knowledge and help pupils become more engaged in their learning back at school.

Activities and learning outcomes.
Club Correze is a small, family run activity centre so we are able to really get to know your group and tailor your programme to meet the educational and developmental needs of your young people.
To help us to do this most effectively we ask that you let us know which learning outcomes are most important to focus on for your group, based on their needs, backgrounds and previous experiences.
To help you tailor your programme to get the most benefit for your young people we have identified which activities are best for achieving which objectives. Please refer to the following chart when planning your programme & requesting activities.
