Experiential Learning Facilitators (ELF) Interest Group
The TP Experiential Learning Facilitators (ELF) is an Interest Group under the Student & Alumni Affairs Department and they are trained to conduct adventure learning such as high ropes courses, abseiling, rock climbing and team building/confidence/leadership activities for the general TP student population. They are very similar to Outward Bound instructors and are trained by TP staff who are from Outward Bound (Singapore) too! In fact a few of these ELFs have graduated and are currently working in Outward Bound Singapore.
So I’m interested but what do I do now?
The ELF warmly invites you to join their weekly trainings. Wednesday from 6pm and Sat from 9am. The trainings are filled with a lot of learning and exciting activities. During the weekly trainings, you will learn about adventure education, how to successfully conduct related activities, learn the appropriate Method of Instructions involved, Risk Management and Debriefing Skills when conducting activities.
If you are adventurous, keen to learn new stuff and like to impart knowledge and skills to others, this is the Interest Group for you!
