WHAT'S ON

The ATE Trust

Rob Collier, a manager at Redshift, volunteers with The ATE Trust, a leading UK provider for children’s residential summer camps. Rob has worked with the Trust since 2008 in a variety of roles, including as a camp supervisor and, more recently, a deputy director.

Rob provides a regular ‘business analysis’ feature in the annual meeting of the Directing Body; a happy symbiosis with his role at Redshift.

The following paragraphs are extracted from The ATE Trust’s mission statement:

 

“The ATE Trust believes in a world where all children can feel safe, loved and supported and a world where all children have the opportunity to have real adventures. A safe place from which they can launch themselves into the unknown, whilst all the time discovering and learning ever more new things about themselves. ATE wants a world where life is not a series of things that have to be done, but of possibilities to savour, to have fun with and to remember forever.”

 

“Children need to be exposed to situations from which they can go away with increased confidence and personal aspirations and, above all, where they can feel, and be, themselves.”

 

“More children need to play; play outside and with other people. Formal education needs to be complemented with imaginative, active interaction. Children need an environment in which they can explore their imaginations, the unrealistic and the still-fictional; a care free environment with limitless possibilities that encourages them to reach for the stars.”

 

“More children need happier childhood experiences and memories created with other children and other adults. ATE wants Britain’s children to have increased, real experiences of positive social interaction with varied personalities. We believe this will lead to better socially-educated young people, and an increased tolerance of others and a positive perspective of the world.”

 

“ATE exists to run, and to champion, our own unique style of residential experiences as a not-for-profit educational Trust with values based in education and active learning. ATE provides children with positive experiences by taking the time to develop creativity, imagination, motivation and skills. A Superweek provides an environment in which a child can be stimulated through making new friends, telling stories, singing, laughter, games, time and, most importantly, play.”

 

“All of the young people (‘Monitors’) who work with the children are both volunteers, and the training for this is as demanding as the role they are undertaking.”

 

“ATE recognises that we are governed by a council of representatives from most major educational associations. The governing council are supportive of ATE’s objectives to provide affordable, educationally enriching experiences for young people, and believe in the value of summer camps. The Council makes sure that keeping children safe, both physically and emotionally is ATE’s top priority.”

Measuring successful acquisitions – Amazon Prime

Amazon measures the success of content based on a cost of first stream metric. Analysis suggests that hitting targets for Amazon’s current sports deals is eminently achievable but competition with traditional broadcasters for more premium rights would require more bullish assumptions. It also throws up some interesting implications for the types of rights Amazon may […]
