Training for Duke of Edinburgh’s Award will take place on Wednesdays after school from 3:50 – 4:50pm. The first session is 23rd August in the library where we will introduce you to the Awards and set up the eDofE usernames and passwords. Attendance is compulsory, and not coming to meetings could jeopardize your place on expedition.
As suspected, we are over-subscribed so everyone will be registered with their award with the £19 you should have already paid. This goes straight to the Duke of Edinburgh Charity and sets up your account, so is non-refundable.
At training after the summer we will help you decide on your skill, volunteering and physical section, as well as give necessary training for map reading, first aid and route planning for expeditions. We will also let you know costings for those going on expeditions. The first of two expeditions will be on Friday 6th and Saturday 7th of October.
General information for the Award can be found on the Duke of Edinburgh website www.dofe.org
