We provide comprehensive educational material to aid the training which is important for your group to plan their expedition safely. We have worked with many groups to deliver the training and assessment expeditions for mainstream schools, youth groups and specialist education.
Additional awards available:
With our inherent flexibility, either delivering all three sections (training, practice and assessment) or just one section of the Award. We will put together a bespoke programme to suit your requirements, complete all of the necessary documentation and can price accordingly.
Example of a Bronze Expedition:
Pre-Expedition Planning and Practice Expedition – Over the course of this stage we cover all the necessary skills to become proficient enough to complete the assessed expedition including organisation, equipment, navigation, cooking, campcraft, route planning and team work. This can be done either as a 3-day training and practice expedition block or several evening training sessions with a 2-day practice expedition, Obviously the longer the training, the better embedded the skills will become.
Assessed Expedition – Remotely supervised by our staff, the candidates will take everything they’ve learned from the training and practice element and work together to plan and execute their expedition together as a team.
Bronze Award – From £200.00 p/p (1-night camp)
Silver Award – From £300.00 p/p (2-night camp)
Gold Award – From £450.00 p/p (3-night camp)
