The Expedition Supervisor training course covers

  • Understanding the role of the Expedition Supervisor, Assessor and other adults involved in the delivery of the Expedition section
  • Understanding the process of remote supervision
  • Understanding the importance of emergency procedures
  • Understanding the duty of care held by the Supervisor.

The course is not accredited as each Licensed Organisation (LO)/Approved Activity Provider (AAP) is responsible for accrediting their own Supervisors and this will be dependent on local requirements.

A Supervisor must have a good level of knowledge in three areas

  • DofE knowledge; including a full understanding of the requirements of the Expedition section and the importance of remote supervision
  • Technical skills; including skills in the method of travel, navigation, camp craft and first aid
  • People skills; including the ability to work well with both young people and other adults in a supportive manner.

This training course only covers the first of these areas

Licensed Organisations/AAPs will need to ensure that potential Expedition Supervisors have the other appropriate skills.

Wednesdays 6 & 13 March 2019 
You must attend both sessions.
