“The approach of Challenger Troop is to communicate directly with pupils to make it clear to them what they are able to achieve and to encourage them to develop self-confidence and pride in their own abilities.”
Respect for others – We help young people to demonstrate positive regard for each other by encouraging our participants to listen to others’ opinions, understand their feelings and appreciate other peoples’ time and personal space.
Integrity – We identify for young people the importance of trust in all aspects of their lives. Their ability to be trusted, coupled with their honesty and truthfulness, will identify them as outstanding individuals.
Loyalty – We support young people in understanding the importance of being faithful, showing attachment and understanding the emotion of affection. Together this will identify commitment to a positive lifestyle.
Appropriate behaviour – We support and provide guidance for young people to behave in an exemplary manner. Inappropriate behaviour will be challenged and sanctions utilised to modify such behaviour.
Total professionalism – We model the highest standards of professionalism at all times. Young people will be encouraged to follow this lead with emphasis on dress code, avoidance of alcohol and drugs, and reinforcement of the importance of self-discipline.
