Time spent in planning is never wasted, so they say. This is definitely true for someone undertaking the award as a participant. But what if you are a group leader, teacher or volunteer with limited resources that are being stretched and innumerable hours of your own time are spent supporting your group? You can let us help!
We know expeditions, we know group work and we know personal development using the outdoors. Let us support you to do what you’re best at by doing what we’re best at.
Organising, training, supervising and assessing groups, particularly for the gold award, can be a logistical challenge. Not to mention a generous time commitment. We will make it easier for you. As an Approved Activity Provider for The Duke of Edinburgh's Award for expeditions, you can rest assured that we know what we’re talking about and that the quality assurance comes direct from the award itself.
We offer comprehensive packages of training and assessment so that you can have the confidence that your group is being developed by skilled professionals.
All our staff hold an MTUK summer mountain leader award and a comprehensive outdoor first aid certificate as a minimum. They are all experienced and skilled in leading and educating groups in the outdoors and are generally all round pretty brilliant people. Overseen by our accredited assessors and operations management team with 24 hour on-call emergency support, your group will be in safe hands from the very beginning of their journey!
We will work with you to create a tailored offering which can include pre-expedition training modules, transport options, location, environmental and logistical advice. MTUK qualified mountain leaders and DofE accredited assessors, emergency on-call support and all from experienced, inspiring outdoor educators.
