Walking Expeditions - Bronze to Gold
We are an approved activity provider (AAP) for the expedition section, and as such have met the requirements of the application and vetting process as set out by the DofE organisation, and are approved to deliver all levels of expeditions at both practise and assessed level.
In addition, we hold a statutory Adventurous Activities Licence, meaning our risk management processes have been externally inspected by the Adventure Activities Licensing Service and have been found to be robust and satisfactory.
We are a small expedition provider, and are unable to accommodate the large numbers some organisations wish to put through the expedition section. We often provide smaller expeditions (3/4 groups), who are seeking a more personal and bespoke experience.
Our ethos with DofE is to deliver a quality professional service, that supports your participants in achieving their outcomes. Using our years of experience as a DofE manager, we aim to prepare participants for their expeditions as fully as possible, giving them the skills and confidence to enjoy and succeed.
For Bronze expeditions we typically use areas such as the Chilterns near to where we are based. Our Silver and Gold Expeditions take place in the Yorkshire Dales and Lake District.
We employ a small staff team, who are selected by us based on their proven skills and experience from previous work. They all have a background in outdoor learning and a commitment to the DofE, some have completed it themselves at various stages. All hold a valid DBS, a recognised NGB award or competency, first aid and will be up to date with our risk benefit analysis and operating procedures.
Costs are very much dependant on final numbers and the level of the award expedition.Please contact us for a no obligation chat to see if we are able to help you.
