Duke of Edinburgh's Award Supervisors Course

For those leaders who have a responsibility for the supervision of expeditions, this course aims to cover the skills and knowledge required for the safe running of expeditions and training.

The Expedition Supervisor training course covers:

  • Understanding the role of the Expedition Supervisor, Assessor and other adults involved in the delivery of the Expedition section.
  • Understanding the process of remote supervision.
  • Understanding the importance of emergency procedures.
  • Understanding the duty of care held by the Supervisor.

The course is not accredited as each Licensed Organisation (LO)/Approved Activity Provider (AAP) is responsible for accrediting their own Supervisors and this will be dependent on local requirements.

A Supervisor must have a good level of knowledge in three areas:

  • D of E knowledge; including a full understanding of the requirements of the Expedition section and the importance of remote supervision.
  • Technical skills; including skills in the method of travel, navigation, camp craft and first aid.
  • People skills; including the ability to work well with both young people and other adults in a supportive manner.

This training course only covers the first of these areas. Licensed Organisations/AAPs will need to ensure that potential Expedition Supervisors have the other appropriate skills.

Course tuition is provided by a D of E accredited trainer. The cost includes all course tuition, certification, training material, hot drinks during the day and a buffet lunch (or equivalent).

Cost: £50 per person
