UFTON LADDERS OF SUCCESS
The ladders break down difficult concepts to give
children building blocks to success and a more
positive mental attitude. They also allow the
children to have a voice in their own personal
development as they can decide, through reflection
The Ladders have further been expanded with skills that strongly
link to becoming Work Ready. We draw on these six behaviours
to inform our programmes to help children and young people
understand what will be expected of them:
These cover the social and emotional areas of:
• SELF-AWARE (Responsible for their own actions)
WELLBEING
• RECEPTIVE (Open minded)
SELF–ESTEEM

and review, where on the ladders they would like to
focus. Working together with Ufton staff, children
create a personal action plan so that the learning
and development gained at Ufton is shared with
and transferred back to school.
Physical and mental health, social
connection, sense of meaningful
purpose
Knowledge of self, feelings of security
and feelings of competence
• DRIVEN (Tries to improve own performance)
• SELF-ASSURED (Confident with good self-esteem)
• RESILIENT (Coping strategies)
TENACITY
Adaptability, persistence, realism
• INFORMED (Aware of options)
FRIENDSHIP
Sharing, consistent behaviour,
positivity and trust
These six skills link well with self-esteem, empathy, friendship,
tenacity and wellbeing.
EMPATHY
Understand how others see and feel
about their world, communicate this
understanding
“Ufton Adventure develops the personal skills and attitudes that young
people need to succeed. At Ufton they learn not to give up and when they
do keep trying they find that they can achieve more than they thought they
could. This fosters self-belief and an improved ability to take control of their
lives.” – PROFESSOR FULLER, READING UNIVERSITY
