Expedition Training

Bronze DofE students began preparing for their expedition last week with Mr Darwin leading sessions on Expedition Kit. Students learnt about what they need to take on expeditions and how to pack a rucksack. Coming up next half term are the route planning sessions - exciting times! Please keep an eye on the DofE section of the school website (under 'parents and students') for more information. Please see documents below that were given out at the training session.

Please note that all 'Expedition Cooking' sessions have been cancelled - we will cover this content on the practice expedition.

Assessor Reports

Assessor reports have to be completed for each section.  Your assessor can be any adult as long as they are not directly related to the participant.
The assessor would normally be the person leading the activity i.e. football coach or piano teacher.
If you are struggling to find an assessor then your DofE leader can write your report (please ask them first).
You will need to provide them with a diary of what you have done each week and how you have improved.

Assessors need to provide a written report in one of 2 ways:

  1. The best way is via edofe.org/assessor.  You just need to give them your eDofE ID number and it is fairly straight forward from there.

Alternatively, they can fill in the assessor report card in your welcome pack.  You will then need to photograph/scan the card and upload it to eDofE yourself.
