Assessed Expeditions

"8. The team must plan and organise the expedition." (20 Conditions)

Your whole group must be involved in the planning of your assessed expedition and you will need both an assessor (as required by the DofE Award Scheme) and a supervisor.  The following options are available to you:

  • Tonbridge Gold expedition weeks
  • Organising your own expedition
  • Using a different AAP (approved activity provider)
  • Doing your expedition abroad

In some cases, the organisers will help you to find a supervisor and an assessor.  In other cases, you have to organise one or both yourselves.  Check out all these options before deciding what to do.

Organising your own expedition is the greatest challenge and involves the most work.  It is also the most exciting, will give you the most satisfaction and will bring you the most benefits in terms of personal development and individual achievement.
