Our Discovery Breaks are a unique combination of a 'Discover Your Potential' course and a relaxing and enjoyable break, hosted in good quality hotel accommodation in some beautiful places in the UK. Our Discovery Breaks will leave you feeling refreshed, inspired and with new focus for your future direction.

The course content is delivered in several sessions during your stay, allowing you to fully explore and absorb the material and giving plenty of time to reflect.  It is carefully structured and delivered by professionals with subject expertise and experience.  As well as benefiting from the the course, we want you to have an all-round amazing time, in beautiful surroundings and comfortable accommodation, so we allow plenty of opportunity for fun, relaxing, leisure activities and making new friends. We know your time is precious, so we want you to feel like you’re on holiday, too. It’s the perfect way to get fresh perspective and recharge your batteries at the same time.

'Discover Your Potential' Course

What is it?
Most of us spend over a third of our lives at work. If you’re not feeling fulfilled or happy in what you do, then every day can feel like a month. However, if you like what you do then, as they say, you will never work a day in your life.

This course will

  • give you fresh perspective on your future direction

  • help you identify your interests, skills, values and strengths

  • enable you to discover your potential

  • allow you to build your network and make new friends.

‘I really enjoyed the relaxed way you did the course, it’s been very helpful and good to do in bitesize chunks.’
— Vicki, 'Discover Your Potential' course, Kent, September 2017

How does it work?
The course sessions are held at different points each day and include individual reflective work as well as some pair and group work. 

There are usually six sessions over the course of a 3-night Discovery Break. These are not always based indoors, as fresh air and a change of environment also help stimulate creativity and discussion. In order to make the most of your time away, there may be a small amount of preparation work to do before the course, but this will be sent to you in good time and with clear instructions.

During the course, there is plenty of opportunity for discussion and exchanging ideas, but you will never be forced to contribute or expected to disclose any personal information that you do not want to share. We take great care to make sure that the group environment is a very ‘safe’ place where everyone respects each other’s opinions, and where you are free to contribute as much or as little as you feel comfortable. You will not be asked to divulge personal details or to perform any embarrassing tasks (although if you feel like showing off any special talents you may have, you are welcome to do so!).
