Year 10/11- Personal Development Course


We are not trying to turn young people into soldiers. Rather, we simply use the best aspects of the military system and ethos to teach young people the value of being responsible for their actions, of doing on their own the work that needs to be done, and of working with others toward a common purpose.


The aim of the programmes delivered by North Wales Training at Kinmel Camp is to provide the environment and resources necessary for its learners to develop their potential in academics, leadership, physical well-being, moral character, and self-discipline so they become productive citizens in a diverse, global society.
