We can offer groups of adults or young people a programme of activities that will provide stimulating, exciting, healthy and fun experiences. If people are looking towards building self esteem, communication, confidence, team work, problem solving, creativity or leadership then we can design a programme to suit.

Personal & Social Development
Although we are a provider of adventurous outdoor activities and the arts, Mobex North East is, first and foremost, a leading personal and social development resource.
Yes we have an impressive catalogue of outdoor specialisms and yes we have an exciting programme of arts activities, all of which help us successfully deliver activity sessions to hundreds of young people each year. But Mobex North East offers much more than a fun day out. We do not provide activity sessions for the sole outcome to be fun. Our mission and purpose are more complex than that.
Learning does not have to be boring; neither does it have to be a chore and something to fear or dread. We understand that combining enjoyment with learning new skills and facing new challenges can reap great rewards - whatever your age and ability. Our activity sessions are fun and enjoyable and focus on developmental learning.
We are not just about climbing or canoeing but recognise the importance that experiences such as these can have on a young person's learning and personal development, whatever their ability or circumstances.
Mobex North East is a personal and social development resource for schools.
We have developed a number of activities to support and complement the school curriculum. Much of our delivery works hand in hand with lessons on PSHE and Citizenship but can also cover other aspects such as history, science or geography. We are registered to deliver ASDAN Short Courses and Wider Key Skills.
Whether you have students with behaviour problems or students who are potential leaders, Mobex North East is able to design a development programme to cover your schools and your students' needs. We are not just about climbing or canoeing but recognise the importance that experiences such as these can have on a young person's learning and personal development, whatever their ability or circumstances.
We want to support schools that nurture innovation and understand that the activities we offer can develop a range of mental and physical skills that are transferable to other aspects of learning.
Give us a call on 0191 2302830 to find out how Mobex North East can complement your school curriculum and benefit your students.
All of the activities Mobex North East deliver offer elements of teambuilding. Yes, when someone climbs to the top of the climbing wall, it is an individual achievement. Yes, when someone plunges into the waterfall, it is an individual who has chosen to jump.
However, as all of Mobex North East's activities are carried out by groups of people sharing and facing the same fears, communicating with each other and working together to ensure that an activity is safely and successfully completed and enjoyed by everyone, individual achievements are often the result of the support, encouragement and bonds of trust developed between the members of the group you are part of.
We can offer you and your group a programme of teambuilding activities which has been designed to help improve your groups communication and listening skills and to help increase your group's self-esteem, motivation and patience. Our teambuilding activities also pay particular attention to the development of trust and teach clients how to work together as a team.
Whatever the particular needs of your group, we can offer problem solving challenges, overnight walking expeditions, team contests and tasks which involve full team participation in order to achieve a defined goal in order for your group to reach its aims and objectives.
If you think you and your group could benefit from a Mobex North East team building session, then please give us a call on 0191 2302830 and we will discuss your requirements with you and design a programme of activities around your exact needs.
