Duke of Edinburgh Expedition Training
We are able to provide training for all levels of the Duke of Edinburgh Award and our qualified and experienced instructors will conduct training on every aspect of the Expedition syllabus to preprare your groups for assessment.
We also provide safety cover for your expedition to ensure that your groups finish their expedition safely and efficiently.
We can provide full training for:
Hillwalking and Canoe Journeys and are able to provide equipment relevant to your expedition, whether its an Open Canoe or a rucksack - we have what you require.
All training is delivered in modular format through practical experiential delivery, combining the head knowledge with practical experience:
- Navigation, Route Planning
- Camp Craft including tent selection/erection, camp hygiene, personal & group management
- Cooking and catering for expeditions
- Personal Kit selection, rucksack packing, First Aid
Of course it is essential to put the theory into practice and our practice expeditions are an essential part of that preparation. The first expedition is guided fully supervised and is often the first time students are able to practice their new navigation skills. The second expedition is designed so that the students are able to manage themselves around a selected route, supervised indirectly by an experienced Mountain Leader in preparation for the final practice where the students are supervised remotely; this is the final expedition before their assessment.
We also advise on how to carry out the project or aim of the expedition, exploring different ways of recording you expedition to deliver a unique and creative presentation.
We are also able to provide trained DoE assessors at all levels of the Duke of Edinburgh's Award.
