New experiences give children a
greater sense of achievement in the great outdoors.

Primal Skills

At Primal we work closely with local schools and youth agencies developing and challenging young children of all ages in an informal and relaxed setting.

This, in turn, develops life skills in a wide range of areas for improved chances in life. We can run half day, full day or 5 day courses, please get in touch with Primal for details.

As approved providers of training by Edinburgh City Council you can be sure our training meets approved safety standards and training practices.

We Aim to Cover the four capacities of the Curriculum for Excellence.

  • Confident individuals: Greater confidence outdoors, improved self-esteem, improved communication and teamwork skills, perseverance through experiential learning,
  • Responsible citizens: Improved respect and understanding for communal areas, public spaces, wildlife and the countryside.
  • Effective contributors: Building a bigger and better society enhancing learners of the natural environment for future generations to enjoy.
  • Successful learners: Sense of achievement and pride, enhanced learning of the natural world, developed life skills.
Make it a day for the children to remember!
The delivery of Bushcraft and Survival skills is a great way to get pupils interested in outdoor learning. It teaches important life skills, which can help to unleash potential, proven to improve results in the classroom.

The Team at Primal are experts at delivering large-scale outdoor wilderness survival skills. From basic to the more advanced, we have something for everyone.

We can work with any size of group working at a 1 – 10 instructor ratio. As approved providers of training, we have all relevant Health and Safety documentation and Risk Assessments.
To show our commitment to delivering the Curriculum for Excellence we are also ambassadors for the John Muir Award and the Junior Award Scheme for Schools (JASS). Both are fantastic tools to help bridge the attainment gap recognising achievement. This allows Primal to award accredited outdoor adventure learning skills to students.
If you would like to learn more about the courses we run, or how Primal can help deliver fun informative outdoor lessons to your students please get in touch.

Junior Award Scheme for Schools (JASS) is a progressive learning programme for young people which has been designed to recognise wider achievement.  The objectives of the JASS programme are aligned with the wider learning objectives of the Curriculum for ExcellenceThe Outdoor Challenge, and the National Curriculum, making it easy to run alongside and incorporate existing curricular activities.

JASS develops the whole individual by offering recognition in four key areas – regular physical activity (Get Active, Stay Active), exploring a personal interest (My Interests), working for the good of the community or the environment (Me and My World) and completing an outdoor activity or challenge (Adventure) and is designed so that participants move through the levels with increasing commitment, learning, and challenge.
