Public Services learners take to the Go-kart track
Level 3 Public Services learners have enjoyed an exciting team-building Go-karting day in the local community.
In an initiative designed to build communication, leadership and teamwork skills, a class of Level 3 Public Services learners have had the opportunity to experience an exhilarating afternoon on the Go-kart track. These skills have a key role throughout many professional careers in the Public Services sector, helping to deliver important functions across local communities.
With the participating learners all in their second and final year of study, activities like this are excellent preparation for their upcoming expedition, which is a key element of their course assessments. This year’s expedition will take place next week between Wednesday and Friday, with learners having the opportunity to put into practice everything that they have learned so far on their course. Set in the New Forest, this will challenge learners to think critically and utilise their environment as they work together across multiple days.
Ian Adams, Public Services Lecturer at Eastleigh College, orchestrated the Go-karting trip for learners and commented: “At this stage in the academic year, it’s sometimes useful to have some extra motivation and the learners loved this afternoon out on the Go-kart track. It’s helped instil some important skills and qualities which will hopefully help them looking ahead to their expedition next week.”
With the afternoon proving such a success, discussions are in place to make this an annual fixture on the Public Services calendar.
