Who is the weekend for?
Are you looking for a Bronze, Silver or Gold assessment expedition but do not have a group of at least 4 people to do it with? Or are you a group of at least 4 planning an expedition but you are all new to it so need some support? Or do you not have a Leader who can supervise you? If so this is the weekend for you.
This is open to all those wanting an assessment at Bronze, Silver or Gold level. It is also open to groups running an assessment for the first time who would like support. The Bronze assessment will take place on 31 August – 1 September 2018 and you will need to communicate in advance with your group to do the planning. The Silver assessment will be 30 August – 1 September 2018 and the planning will again be done in advance electronically. The Gold assessment is from the late afternoon of 28 August when we meet beforehand at a Youth Hostel to meet the assessor and finalise details, before beginning the expedition proper on the morning of 29 August.
It is essential that all the training is signed off and you have successfully completed a practice before attending for assessment. This will be on eDofE.
If you do not have a group of your own, so long as at least 4 people apply you will make up a group to complete your practice. You will be communicating electronically with each other in advance to start the planning of the route.
If you attend the practice weekend run by Girlguiding North East England, you will have covered most of the topics.
Leaders of groups:
If you are the adult leader of a Bronze, Silver or Gold group running an expedition for the first time you can make use of our experience and expertise in supervising expeditions. We will give you the campsites but your group will be free to plan their own route based on that. The cost for the weekend will be as given above.
