Bronze Expeditions
  • It is important to state firstly that participants do not have to complete their expedition with school. They can undertake an open expedition with an outside activity approved provider details can be found on the dofe website 

Mandatory Training

There is a minimum level of training in each award that participants must undertake, however you must have your supervisor's approval before you are able to undertake the qualifying expedition - this may mean undertaking more training than the minimum requirement.

Before undertaking your assessment you must attend and pass at least one Bronze Core Skills Weekend (non-residential), a planning session and a practice day walk.

FULL ATTENDANCE IS MANDATORY - You will be not be released for sports events or any other activities either involving or outside of school during any of the training or expedition. 

Numbers are restricted to 45 students per event so please book your training weekends and expedition early to avoid disappointment!
