What Does Our Course Cover?


We believe that many important life skills are key to a young person's success. Having a basic knowledge of elements such as car and house maintenance, finance, and business acumen is fundamental. We found that many schools do not offer some of the most basic lessons of life, normally resulting in a phone call to mum and dad to find the answers.

Outlined below is a brief overview of just some of the key elements the Imogen Carrington Course focuses on. Carried out over five days for young ladies and gentlemen, you will experience face-to-face, hands-on teaching from professionals in each field over the week. We ensure the needs of all students are always met with a strong degree of punctuality and individuality. 

Our course is to be held at the Royal Agricultural University from 31 July - 4 August 2023.

Our course is priced at £650 incl. accommodation, food and bedding.
