Do you want to offer DofE at your institution but feel like you don’t know where to start? Or you don’t have the staffing time or resources to allocate to the project?
If the answer to any of the above is a yes, why not consider a personalised and bespoke Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Consultancy Service from Mountain Water Expeditions; a company with many years of experience in offering both DofE training and assessment expeditions, DofE Gold residentials and as a DofE manger in several large organisations.
The team at Mountain Water Expeditions are highly experienced in training and supervising groups and group leaders on the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme.
In particular, Alan first became involved with the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme as a participant as a young man, working his way through the scheme to gain his Gold Award. Alan then went on to become the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Expedition Worker for Knowsley Council before going to university. While working at a large secondary school in the North West of England, Alan was given responsibility for managing the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme with over 200 pupils working their way through Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards. Alan was instrumental in his school becoming the first Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Direct License Centre for a state school in the U.K and he was also successful in the schools application to become a Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Approved Activity Provider for expeditions.
