Students take part in team building
Students from Ayrshire College’s HIVE (Hope, Inspiration and Vision in Education) facility took part in an army team building day.
The HIVE is a unique learning environment within the College that offers short courses which develop students’ essential skills, motivation and self-confidence in an innovative and engaging way.
Over 200 HIVE students from across campus, participated in team-building activities, delivered by The Royal Highland Fusiliers soldiers at the Kilmarnock Campus.
Uniformed Services students from Kilmarnock were on hand to help the students participate in various activities, ranging from the assault course, fitness tests and team games.
Lecturer Dave Malcolm, Sport and Fitness Lecturer said “the students had a great day and enjoyed the team building and problem-solving activities. They particularly enjoyed experiencing the fitness elements that army training involves, and discovering the various careers available in the army.”
Fiona Walterson, Inclusive Learning Assistant said “as well as having a fabulous time, the students gained insight into the demanding physical training that soldiers endure to develop their fitness. Participating in various team building activities encouraged the students to develop their leadership and communication skills.”
