Open Silver DofE Expeditions

Join us for your Pre-Expedition Training & Practice Expedition, your Qualifying Expedition or both - choose what works best for you.

How it works

Training and practice expeditions (4 days): cover all aspects of the Silver pre-expedition training syllabus, including route planning for, and then completing, a three day practice expedition.

Qualifying expedition programmes (4 days): include a day of route planning and pre-expedition checks followed by a three day qualifying expedition assessed by a DofE Accredited Assessor.

Programmes include plenty of time to get to know your team mates and mentoring from your instructor continues throughout so that you always feel supported.
