Service Description

This is a 'back to back' traditional Silver training, practice and qualifying expedition that will be run from our site on the Ashdown Forest in line with current DofE temporary guidance changes! Our walking expedition packages take on the same format, whatever the level of award. Each training day / practice expedition will start with the following key elements that form the basis of a safe and successful qualifying expedition experience. Our highly experienced instructors will cover the following key subject areas: - The Expedition Rucksack, Equipment and Footwear - Campcraft and Use of Stoves - Emergency Procedures and Incident Management - First Aid Procedures - Road Crossings and Walking on Roads - Navigation and Route Planning - Environmental Awareness and The Countryside Code The practice expedition will start with direct supervision. This will allow us to assist with any areas that may need additional support. Once we are satisfied with the team’s ability to remain self-sufficient, our instructors will step back and meet the team at various points along the practice route and provide comprehensive feedback at the end with some pre-qualifying expedition hints and tips! For the qualifying expedition, the team will meet their assessor at the start who will go through the 20 conditions to make sure they have met the requirements of this section of the award. They will also conduct a kit check of both personal and group equipment to satisfy themselves that the team is adequately prepared for their expedition. At Silver and Gold, the team will have an additional supervisor who will be responsible for the welfare of the team throughout the expedition.
