We are working on and developing our links to Study Support with regard to our already popular and well received outdoor classroom activities and our school based projects in and around Kent.
Phil Brown founder and head instructor of Badger Bushcraft says:-
‘The ultimate aim of our learning activities outside normal lessons and school based projects is to increase the attainment of young people. By working in the outdoor classroom and providing various supported and safe challenges in the spheres of bushcraft and nature based education Badger Bushcraft engages young people with a tactile and non-academic approach. We passionately believe that engaged learning through the interest of the natural world and the challenges of bushcraft skills increases motivation, boosts self-esteem and greatly improves attainment which, therefore, develops an enjoyment of learning and enhances the life chances of the young people we work with.
The partnership links we have with Kent Country Council are going from strength to strength and we are excited about developing our programmes further.’
Badger Bushcraft is working in partnership with Kent County Council

"Study Support is learning activity outside normal lessons which young people take part in voluntarily.
Study Support is, accordingly, an inclusive term, embracing activities with many names and many guises. It's purpose is to improve young people's motivation, build their self-esteem and help them to become more effective learners.
Above all it aims to raise attainment."
