Inme instructors regularly undergo a range of training programs that are focused on their technical skills, facilitation/debriefing skills, communication, gender sensitization, wilderness safety and support.
Our instructors have been trained at Atal Bihari Vajpayee Institute of Mountaineering and Allied Sports, Manali; Nehru Institute of Mountaineering, Uttarkashi; Himalayan Mountaineering Institute, Darjeeling; La Trobe University and Holmesglen Institute, Australia
We partner with schools and work with students, teachers and school leaders. Workshops are customized to cater to individual needs and are a mix of outbound programs and in school sessions.
Inme is the first outdoor education company in the country to meet international standards of safety and clear an intensive risk assessment by King’s College, London
Keynote speaker at the 2017 Association of Experiential Education (AEE) conference in Montreal, Canada, TC spoke about how the experiential education field has grown in India over the last 26 years.
All activity situations are designed in a way that the real risk is always lower than the perceived one. The key is to enable one to take action - each child must overcome a hurdle, whether physical or mental.
Being open to new experiences, people and opinions helps you discover the real you. Realising what holds you back, and overcoming it can build a more productive attitude.
Having someone you trust guide you in difficult situations allows you to take a leap of faith. In addition, knowing that one is safe reduces the fear of the ‘unknown’ making children likelier to try new experiences.
The physical challenge and level of instruction on every program is created for children within that age group. Grouping by age also helps children become comfortable quickly and socialise more with peers.
Debriefing sessions at the end of the day help in connecting the day’s experiences to real life. Applying these lessons to different situations helps in enhancing self-awareness which leads to growth.
Being thrown into an unfamiliar environment encourages one to think independently and find the best way to approach problems. The struggle to decide, get buy-ins to common goals builds confidence and team spirit.
Lessons for life such as overcoming difficulty, tenacity—and even independence—are assimilated though action because knowing the right thing to do is not the same as doing it.
Children realise the importance of timeliness and taking ownership of tasks. They begin to see that their actions (or inactions) have real consequences. This awareness helps imbibe a sense of respect for what they have.
Working in groups, taking charge and sharing responsibilities helps to build trust, increase co-operation and interpersonal effectiveness. The confidence to lead becomes a powerful attitude in life.
From instructors who help you come out of a tight spot to peers who share similar experiences - everyone gets an opportunity to come out of their shell and build genuine friendships for life.
