Outdoor Education - Personal competence

Personal competence

Another important adventure trait is to be able to use personal competence
[1]and the opportunity to exercise control over one's environment. This,
in turn, allows the participant to influence the way the adventure turns
out. In Criterion 3 you need to illustrate your understanding of how
adventure is affected by safety and the skill levels of the instructors and
participants. Look at your own experiences of adventure and how they were
affected by the safety considerations of the activity. Dr Simon Priest
Canadian, outdoor educationalist, talks about the importance of the balance
of real and perceived risk. [2] He explores the importance of having
empowerment, flexibility, uncertain outcomes, reflection, judgement and
competence in order to reach the potential gain of the activity: the peak
adventure.
