The Abernethy School of Adventure Leadership - 12 month programme

Abernethy Trust

The Abernethy School of Adventure Leadership, now based in the Scottish Highlands, is a Spiritual and Adventure Leadership Formation Programme.  

Starting this September 2020, our twelve month, full-time residential course allows students to go deep into God’s word and character, hone soft skills alongside NGB qualifications, and learn how to lead groups in the outdoors. 

Our new partnerships with Solas and Precept Ministries and various either Bible teachers will grow the spiritual aspect of the course: students will learn how to use the outdoors as a tool to share the gospel.  For September 2020, we’ve also reduced the cost of the year. 

Read our online brochure here.

The year-long programme will focus on four core areas:

  • Spiritual Formation in partnership with bible teachers from across the UK.
  • Leader Formation, which will look at both secular and Biblical leadership models and their applicability to outdoor adventure and personal and spiritual development.
  • Mission and communication, using adventure to be sent out, to go beyond.
  • Instruction, gaining NGB qualifications, and coaching.

Due to the age restrictions of the qualifications, you will need to be 18 by the time the assessments begin.
