Fishing for Skills

Fishing For Skills Weekly Alternative Education

Educational Fishing and Personal Development Course.

During this course participants will progress through several different disciplines of angling, these include:

  • Pole Fishing
  • Float Fishing
  • Feeder Fishing
  • Carp Fishing
  • Surface Fishing (weather permitting)

The course is themed around Personal and Team Development. Participants will not only learn new Fishing Skills but will also take part in several Team Challenges.

FLE's experienced staff will facilitate learning based on the following theories:

  • Comfort Zones
  • Learning Cycles
  • Levels of Awareness
  • Leadership Styles
  • Looking to the Future

This course is far more than just going fishing. Past participants have developed greater confidence and self esteem, helping them to better prepare for lives challenges and look ahead to the future in a positive way. During the course there will be a small amount of written work and extra support is available from FLE tutors for anyone that may need it. On the final day of the course we visit the famous Sparsholt College and are privileged to be able to fish on their exclusive lake. After fishing at the lake we take a guided tour of the National Aquatic Training Centre with the view to opening people's eyes to the alternative forms of higher education available to them.
