More detail to help you decide if TNT is right for you…

TNT lasts from Friday lunchtime until 5pm on a Sunday. There are usually 14-16 people in each TNT, with 3 to 4 trainers guiding you through the weekend.

The weekend includes sessions on personal development, teambuilding, strategic planning, building a movement, leadership, conflict management and public speaking. As well as burnout prevention, training skills, facilitation skills, and time management.

It’s an incredibly interactive weekend, with the majority of your time spent in group work and group discussions. You’ll get to know the rest of your group very well by the end!

Throughout the weekend we encourage you to reflect on everything you do; to think about why you think and believe certain things, as well as to maximise your learning from each activity.

During the weekend you also get to plan and run your own mini training session so that the trainers and your peers can give you.
