Duke of Edinburgh Award - Gold Training & Assessment

The centre has many years experience in providing training and assessment and facilitation for the D of E Award.

We hold a D of E licence and are accredited by the D of E.

We can offer training, practice expeditions, qualifying expeditions and staff support for expeditions if running your own expedition. WE  do not offer individual places, only group bookings.

Clients often ask us to deliver training looking at the following elements:

  • Planning routes
  • Packing
  • Group safety
  • Navigation
  • Camp craft
  • Expedition skills
  • Leadership
  • Managing risk
  • Facing challenges
  • Self reliance
  • Respect for the environment
  • Remote supervision

Types of Expedition

Most clients choose to expedition on foot. However another option is to possibly use canoe as a mode of transport

The Package

Many of our clients take our package option. As we are accredited with D of E it means paper and route logistics are made simpler. In addition to this, working under Blue Peris means there is local knowledge to hand, your course is covered under our AALA licence, and we use our direct pool of approved assessors.

Supply of ML Staff

Another popular service we offer is the provision of staff qualified to remote supervise groups on expedition. This allows groups to use their own staff, to assist with expedition logistics, thus keeping costs down.

Assessor Status

The centre has 6 qualified and approved D of E assessors.


Rather than advertise varied course options we specialise on designing courses to suit clients needs. We have found this gives a more flexible service and helps meets the needs of the customer more directly.


We will require you to complete a booking form once discussions with the centre have taken place.
