Our wide range of Activities & Excursions are designed around essential skills to help young learners and young adults build a successful future. Students will be evaluated during activities and excursions to see how they are building a variety of different Life Skills. From taking lead on a team project that builds confidence to creating a piece of work to document a project in the local area - there are lots of opportunities for our students to develop their Life Skills. After taking part in activities representing the different Life Skills, students can track their progress and download certificates on our new Embassy Summer app, and earn an Embassy cap!

We've mapped all of our lessons, activities and excursions to clear skills that will stay with our students as they grow into productive and successful adults. All this while having a great time, meeting friends from around the world and improving their English language skills.
