The Expedition Skills Module is an optional module available to walking leaders. It’s an opportunity to increase your skills where you will be trained and assessed to lead groups on multi day camping expeditions. The flexibility of the module makes it useful for Lowland Leaders, Hill and Moorland Leaders and Mountain Leaders in terrain and conditions within the scope of their respective leadership award.
The Expedition Skills Module is ideal for those involved with the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and/or Ten Tors training (among other things) because the skills covered apply to expeditions using commercial campsites as well as wild camping.
When you register for either the Lowland Leader or Hill and Moorland Leader scheme you’ll automatically be registered for the Expedition Skills Module.
The Expedition Module Training and Assessment costs £120 per person. We are able to provide accommodation on site for both the Expedition Module Training and Assessment, please ask for further information.
