Dear Silver Participants,

The Training Requirements for the Silver Expeditions in your groups are:
1 Core Skills Weekend (not overnight)  
At least 1 Practice: 3 days/2 nights and Assessment: 3 days/2 nights

There are limited spaces for each date and they will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

Available Practice & Assessment dates for 2022

09-11 April 2022 - Practice

22-24 April 2022 - Practice

03-05 June 2022 - Practice/Assessment

21-23 July 2022 - Assessment

There is an online booking form for the Core Skills Weekend below

However, all practice and assessment expedition bookings must be made by one member of the group direct to Natalie Berry and she will distribute places on a first come first served basis.

Take care when choosing your group and booking the dates for your expeditions as you must ensure that you will be available for the entire length of the trip. Requests for permission to join late or leave early will not be approved except in extremely rare and unforeseen circumstances (e.g.a funeral but not a family wedding or birthday celebration).
Please note: You will not proceed onto your assessment unless you are deemed safe to do so by the OED Staff.
Once your group has registered a payment request will be put on school gateway. This must be paid no later than two weeks before the event.
