Enjoy the challenge...
We work with school Duke of Edinburgh's Award coordinators to design programmes that complement schools' curriculum. This can mean after-school and weekend sessions as best fit with pupils' schedules. Young people participating may be seeking a challenge, or wanting to boost their university or college applications, or simply wanting a shared experience with peers. Whatever the reasons for taking part we aim to ensure they have a worthwhile and enjoyable experience.
If you are looking to complete part of a Duke of Edinburgh's Award we can explore with you opportunities to join with our expedition programme.
We can work with you to provide as little or as much as you need for your Duke of Edinburgh's Award expedition, or to support you in improving the quality of your own outdoor training.
Our approaches can include:
Promoting Duke of Edinburgh's Award participation to pupils
Target setting with groups
Classroom & practical taught sessions
Campcraft, navigation, nutrition, groupwork, emergency procedures
First aid training
Transport & campsite bookings
