The Treverton Post Matric Programme or GAP Year has been an integral and important part of the Treverton product for many years. Not only have participants experienced personal growth and development as a result of their experiences, they have also contributed to the development and growth of our pupils through the Outdoor Pursuits lessons that they help to facilitate as part of the experience.
As of January 2021, we will be venturing into new territory by bringing our Outdoor Pursuits lessons into the College teaching structures. We have entered into an agreement with Johann Lombard of Earth Scene, who will run an independent GAP program from our facilities. The GAP program will not be a Treverton product at all and will be run as an independent business, trading under the name of Urban Rooster. It will have a very strong outdoor and environmental focus, much like the Treverton GAP program did. Although it will not be a Treverton GAP year, Treverton will benefit from the arrangement in two important ways.
1. Financially – the independent GAP year will rent all facilities and equipment from Treverton
2. Structured experiential learning – as part of our agreement, Urban Rooster will facilitate termly curriculum-related experiential learning interventions for each grade in the school.
This arrangement allows Treverton to focus our resources on our core business – education – whilst being able to offer our pupils the benefit of professionally facilitated experiential learning opportunities that bring the curriculum to life outside of the classroom. The format of these interventions will also provide the opportunity for leadership principles to be introduced and applied. We are excited at the opportunities that this relationship presents. The initial implementation timeframe will be flexible to allow for Covid-related restrictions to be managed, but we hope to be fully engaged by the start of Term 2 2021.
