Holiday Camps 

Holiday Activity & Food Provision

Since 2012 Personal Best Education have ran successful Holiday Activity Camps for young children during the School Holiday periods. Providing a safe and engaging environment for parents to leave their children. 

This provision has branched out from our original site here at The Mountbatten School in recent years to incorporate areas in Eastleigh and Gosport. 

National Citizen Service (NCS) 

Personal Best has been one of Hampshire’s largest NCS providers for almost a decade. This youth project for 15-17 year olds enables teens to learn essential life skills, build their confidence and make a positive contribution to their local communities. 
 
To date we have provided over 20,000 local young people with the opportunity to take part in the NCS Programme who have in turn had a positive impact on over 200 charities across Hampshire by volunteering over 300,000 hours of their time and raising over £250k since its inception. 

Safety & Well-Being

Bikeability gives everyone the confidence to cycle and enjoy this skill for life, whilst helping save lives and serious injury on Hampshire’s roads.

We are the main regional delivery provider for the nation’s Bikeability Scheme.

Having equipped over 50,000 children with the key skills required to navigate the ever-more challenging roads they face on a daily basis, our expert trainers ensure Hampshire’s young people are kept as safe as possible, whilst enjoying the benefits of exercise without leaving a carbon-footprint.

Employability Schemes

Personal Best is involved in a variety of vocational programmes to help people into jobs and improve their prospects of building a successful and sustainable career. 

As an approved Gateway Provider of the UK Government Kickstart Scheme, Personal Best assists in placing young people in likeminded organisations to give them valuable work experience whilst gaining new skills which will improve their future employability outlook.

Community Support Projects

One of our key aims at Personal Best is to ensure the community is at the heart of everything we do and offer support to those most in need. 

Initiatives have included free childcare provision for key workers and vulnerable children as well as carrying out weekly food drops during the COVID pandemic. 

We also  support community projects such as combating loneliness, homelessness, free-school meals and more.

Great opportunities to help others seldom come, but small ones surround us every day.
