Inspiring Learning


The leading outdoor education group has launched a partnership with British Fencing to deliver fencing sessions designed specifically to build resilience among young people. As part of this relationship, Inspiring Learning has been named British Fencing’s Official Resilience Partner.

Under the new partnership, fencing sessions will be delivered at Inspiring Learning’s 11 Kingswood centres around the country, reaching thousands of students on residentials throughout the year. Inspiring Learning will also be responsible for hosting and training British Fencing coaches in the new lesson format. The new programme will be delivered within British Fencing’s We Are Forging Futures framework, an Ofsted-aligned, resilience and self-efficacy programme designed to build confidence in young people through fencing-based activities.

Grounded in outcomes-based learning, the new partnership transforms fencing sessions – traditionally focused on the technical aspects of the sport – to instead enable young people to develop the less tangible skills of resilience, such as dealing with and bouncing back from setbacks, all within in a safe game-based environment. From this, the students can take the soft skills developed back into the classroom and their wider lives.
