The Outdoor Education Philosophy at Sail in Asia

At Outdoor Education in Asia we believe in a student-centred approach to learning about Outdoor Education. Our programmes are professionally designed, to provide, comprehensive experiential learning experiences. All our courses result in your students receiving an Internationally recognised qualification, from the International Sailing Schools Association (ISSA).

Our Core Activities and courses will form the basis of your trip and give your students high quality learning experiences on, or in, the water. We have devised a menu of Additional Activities, both physical and cultural, that you can add to your chosen Core Activities. Adventurous Journeys are our speciality and we have some really exciting expeditions for school groups. Pre-visits by Teachers are really ideal and not only help you to gain skills before your trip but also help group leaders and SIA staff organise and discuss, in person, your school trip or expedition. These visits are also really valuable as key staff get a chance to engage in some of the activities wherever possible.

Our Watersports Adventure Activity

The adventure activity on offer to schools, includes sail training courses, multi-activity adventure weeks, expeditions and regattas. Our activities are aimed at students aged 12-18 years, although we can also offer adventure activity, for Top Juniors, in Primary schools. We use yachts, dragon boats, canoes, dinghies and keelboats. All are carefully selected, to be well suited to training but most important safe and fun to be on.

Students (and teachers), over the course of their stay with us, will challenge themselves, overcome real-life problems, learn communication and teamwork skills, and develop their confidence and leadership potential. Highly skilled staff and well designed programmes, provide a structure within which students can be safe, discover, get inspired and succeed!

Our objective is always to develop practical skills alongside the theoretical knowledge needed to be a safe and competent. SIA Training combines theory and practice and this positively impacts on the quality of learning. The most effective learning is a consolidated process which mixes the two elements. We believe that our approach to sail training is more enjoyable, more educational and produces better sailors more quickly. Come along and experience the Sail in Asia / International Sailing Schools Association approach and give your students the adventure holiday of a lifetime.
