ATNE is managed by experienced former teachers. Caroline was a Head of Department; Jon an Assistant Head Teacher. We understand schools, the pressures on staff, and most importantly we understand 'young people', this is a real strength of our work in the outdoors.
As a result of our comprehensive network of contacts we have planned and delivered a wide range of schools based outdoor learning programmes across all key stages from Early Years 'Woodland Days' to 6th Form expeditions. We have worked with schools from London, Derbyshire, Northumberland, Newcastle, Gateshead, North Tyneside, South Tyneside, Durham, Cleveland and Yorkshire.
Forest School, Wider Key Skills, PE Assessments, self-esteem and confidence development, reward days, induction programmes, residential weeks, DofE, staff training; we have experience of working with schools in a wide variety of interesting and exciting ways.
Use our experience and let us help you to plan a fantastic outdoor learning experience for your students and staff.
After being recommended by his school my son did his practice ‘Open’ Silver D of E expedition this summer with ATNE and then in October he took part in his Qualifying expedition with a larger group from his school. Adventure Training North East was a great recommendation, from my first communication with Jon Chamberlain right through to Qualification. With school run expeditions it is easier to feel more relaxed about safety and support in numbers etc, but I can honestly say that Jon’s regular communication, quick response to queries and kit advice etc was very reassuring and didn't prove otherwise throughout both expeditions. My Son clearly enjoyed both expeditions, with Jon’s teaching and guidance. I would highly recommend ATNE to anyone else and wouldn't hesitate to use them in the future. Sounds like they do an amazing variety of experiences, how lucky to have this provision on our doorstep.
