This programme involved 185 students aged 15-17.

The first week involved them staying at an outdoor activity centre, getting to know one another and taking part in team building activities.

The next part of the programme looked to develop their life skills by taking part in sessions like Drive IQ run by Cambridgeshire Road Safety Partnership and a police officer, money management, a youth MP session, a careers session, and 
the chance to test their 
team work in the Escape Rooms.
