The Story

WHY EXPLORIENTATION ?

With the current fast pace of education we, at Explorientation, have observed that many school-leavers are in need of a break from formal education and are looking for something constructive to actively do to expand their skill-base and explore their motivation before moving on to further education.  Likewise graduates are often looking for an opportunity to broaden their horizons before they continue to study or enter the job market and career breaks are often enhanced by constructive time-out in the form of a Sabbatical.

At Explorientation our combined and varied international experience/contacts along with our coaching skills provide a unique and individual approach to global time out in what we call an EXPLO – time  to explore and find orientation.

Our clients ask themselves:

• What options are there?

• What challenge would be right for me?

Explore + Orientation  = EXPLORIENTATION / EXPLO

A friend describes our expertise: “At Explorientation their Coaching & Training expertise along with strong and far reaching international experience and contacts, offer their clients a unique insight.  This diverse and tailor-made approach gives their clients constructive, ethical and challenging projects that ensures that their optimal potential develops and succeeds”.

As individual Explo advisors our goal and passion is to ensure that our clients are introduced to options that are unique and tailor-made to their requirements so that they return motivated and enriched to face the challenges ahead.
