Outward Bound Oman

Courses

Since our launch in 2009 we have worked with dozens of Oman government schools, and with some of the leading international schools in the region, including the British School Bahrain, The American International School Muscat, Rashid School Dubai, British School Muscat, British International School Riyadh and St. Christopher's Bahrain. Using the inspirational wilderness environment here in Oman, we can design courses specific to your needs, and work with you to run memorable, challenging International Award and International Baccalaureate CAS expeditions.

We run courses that focus on developing key life skills that are hard to achieve in formal, classroom situations. All of our courses focus on long term, meaningful outcomes, and are designed to achieve specific, positive learning outcomes to support work done in the classroom, and enable schools to deliver a well rounded education.

At Outward Bound Oman we understand that whilst teachers and students need to justify the loss of curriculum time for ‘out of school learning,’ leading schools increasingly recognise the value of experiential learning in genuinely preparing their students to succeed within and beyond the school environment.  Our approach is based on a proven and refined experiential learning process, designed to achieve specific, positive learning outcomes that schools tell us make a real and measurable difference to their students. We create opportunities for young people to see what they might really be able to achieve in life; whether in the classroom, on the sports field or in a future career.

Recent research in UK revealed 80% of teachers confirmed their Outward Bound experience had significantly improved their students overall performance. Of particular note was student progress in the following areas;

  •          Development of communication skills
  •          Improvement in ability to work together as a team
  •          Increase in self confidence.    

As in the classroom, to maximise the learning environment, and for purposes of safety, group sizes are limited.   

Please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss how we can work together with your school. We believe Oman offers a safe, unique wilderness environment combined with a rich cultural heritage to develop young people into well rounded individuals. Especially popular are our ‘Teams and Leaders’ and ‘Aiming Higher’ courses.
