Duke of Edinburgh Award

Duke of Edinburgh Award expeditions are a speciality of ours. We’ve been involved with the DofE since 2009, helping  to provide expeditions with schools and youth groups, for both Bronze and Silver participants. Our proven format covers the DofE common training syllabus (CTS) through a mixture of indoor and outdoor inputs. The participants are also offered supervised day walks, on which they’ll learn and practice expedition skills before undertaking a practice expedition and finally their assessed expedition.

Our expeditions take in a mix of  the North Pennines and Hadrians Wall country.
