We can just about do anything to make your visit to us all the more enjoyable.  If you need to hire some indoor space we can organise, if you need us to do catering then no problem.  The focus of our days is on fun, challenge and getting to know one another – we talk to you first to find out what you want to achieve from the day.

your safety

equipment

closer to the edge

All CTTE sites are equipped with modern, high-tech safety systems to ensure that our customers are permanently clipped on and safe. CTTE provide all Personal Protective Equipment (harnesses and helmets). We do not provide waterproofs, spare shoes, umbrellas etc, it is essential that delegates come prepared for the weather as getting cold and wet will affect the success of the day. Please leave phones and other bulky equipment on the ground….the conference call can wait.

The lads had a great time, and we as a management team thought the exercises you put us through were fantastic, it has helped bringing some of the new lads closer into the squad, hope you and your team enjoyed the lads company !! We will definitely look at doing this again next season.

Mel I would just like to say what a fantastic team building day we had with your team, there were many challenges throughout the day that really made us think about how we had to work as a team to achieve our goal, and also support each other to do this. We felt challenged physically and mentally, and above all we had fun!. We all noticed the imrprovement we made as a team from the morning session, to the afternoon session. I am confident that this experience will make a difference to our team work in the future. Thankyou to you and your team, from all of our team.

glynn primary school staff

Mel, Just to say thank you for an absolutely fabulous day. It is hard to motivate staff on any first day back after a holiday, but the six week break is the hardest, but all your staff were fantastic. The way you sorted out the groupings was superb.  All of our staff felt comfortable with the activities and any anxieties they had soon disappeared. They enjoyed what they did and found the activities very useful. Several of the ideas could most definitely be used with the children. So many staff commented that they found out so much about some staff that they had never even spoken to before and the atmosphere generally in school has benefited from the day.We will definitely use Closer To The Edge again, for the children and the staff. Thanks again.

Thanks CTTE – what a great day! There was something for everyone – it wasn’t just a macho day out! The emphasis appeared to be on ‘inner drive’ and ‘discipline’ coupled with ‘team-support’, so there was no adverse outside pressure to accomplish the blatantly unattainable – unless you wanted to!

The same, seemingly impossible tasks threw up different challenges for different people in different ways – they just happened to be satisfyingly and euphorically ‘doable’! With expert, top-drawer trainers on hand, to whom safety appeared to be paramount, we always felt in good hands, yet able to have a really stretching and memorable experience. Brilliant!
