A full-time Team Director is responsible for the daily management of the course as well as much of the training. The Director reports directly to the College Headmaster and School Chaplain who carry the ultimate responsibility for the course. External specialist instructors and other Treverton staff are involved in various courses and experiences.
Unlike conventional Gap year courses, Treverton’s students are completely independent. They are housed in a complex that is made up of four thatched cottages, the director’s house, and a resource and training centre. Separate cottages are provided for male and female students. Together as a team they share a communal meeting space consisting of a lounge area, kitchen, dining and laundry facility. The entire complex overlooks the college dam. This location is good for the soul!
We offer a multifaceted launch pad for adult life, encapsulated in 11 months, which includes a wide spectrum of experiences of adventure activities, learning for life components, ministering and impacting others, and finding direction for future career and ministry paths. Each individual aspect of these focal points is designed to be integrated with each other, contributing to an effective and well-balanced course.
