During the courses our instructors monitor progress and observe participants within different team building scenarios.

Aim: To set specific group objectives and achieve team goals.

Objectives:  To enable participants to:-

  • Communicate effectively
  • Manage time

Search & Rescue Exercise

This is a scenario based team building exercise (e.g. hill walking scenario). The group is sub-divided into smaller teams. Each team is given a map and an area to search for a missing casualty. Using only the materials provided the team must treat the casualty and conduct a safe rescue from the hill.

Team members must collaborate to bring the casulty to base.

The members of the search and rescue teams will use map reading, communication, delegation, decision making and leadership skills to ensure  effectiveness.
