Training Opportunities

OXPED is planning to run an expedition training weekend at a central location within Oxfordshire suitable for all levels of the Award, early in the forthcoming expedition season. There will also be a Gold-specific training event prior to our summer Gold expeditions.

If you would like to attend, please contact Cheryl Lingard to register your interest. Further details will follow in due course.

Expedition Training Booklet

An Expedition Training Booklet is available for download from the bottom of this page.

It has been compiled from a number of sources by members of OXPED, and is meant to form the basis of an training course for young people prior to undertaking their practice expedition. It concentrates mostly on Bronze level training, but should be useful for Silver and Gold participants as well. Please feel free to print a copy out to keep as a reference manual.

Participants taking part in an OXPED expedition are expected to be competent in all aspects of the expedition as covered by the booklet.

For reference, the Expedition Training Frameworks for Bronze, Silver and Gold levels may downloaded from the Expedition Downloads page on the DofE website.
