EXPEDITION - FIXED PRICE PACKAGES
WOLT is an Approved Activity Provider (AAP) and can run your school’s expedition section at Bronze, Silver and Gold levels. While we may not be the cheapest AAP around, you can rely on our high standards and an expedition experience that your pupils will be talking about for a long time to come.
We offer a standard walking expedition package at a fixed price per participant:
- Bronze £150 (£125 + VAT)
- Silver £250 (£208 + VAT)
- Gold £420 (£350 + VAT)
- These packages take care of all aspects of the expedition on the school’s behalf including all training, route planning, eDofE plus both expeditions.
- contact us at email@example.com to arrange a meeting to discuss your needs
If you are interested in a different challenge or your participants don’t fancy doing their expedition on foot, why not consider a canoeing expedition instead – contact us for a quote.
Please note: prices apply to expeditions of 4 teams or more. If you have 3 teams or less, please contact us to discuss.
EXPEDITION - QUALIFIED STAFF
WOLT can supply a qualified and experienced member of staff to work alongside your staff and take the role of Expedition Supervisor or Assessor at a flat rate of £150 per day (plus £30 if staying overnight). With this option, your school can organise the expedition - with guidance from WOLT if required - in order to keep the cost down for the participants. We are always happy to discuss how the school and WOLT can work together to give your pupils a great quality experience without breaking the bank.
EXPEDITION - TRAINING ONLY
We can run a Bronze/Silver training day as a stand-alone event, covering the practical side of the DofE Training Framework, at a price of £30 per head (minimum numbers apply).
Does your school/college offer the Gold Award for students over 16? If not, consider introducing this amazingly valuable addition to a young person’s life experience! We can provide the Expedition Section for your group, plus opportunities for the Residential section.
LEADER TRAINING COURSES
WOLT is able to run DofE Award Leader training courses in the autumn of 2017. Check out our upcoming courses which are available to everyone:
Introduction to the DofE - Autumn 2018
Expedition Supervisor Training Course - Autumn 2018
Expedition Assessor Accreditation Course - Sat 7th April 2018
These are advertised on our DofE Training Course page and the DofE website. Alternatively we can run a course specifically for your school/college if required (with minimum of 5 candidates).
And don't forget WOLT's very popular Outdoor First Aid courses - ideal for anyone involved in the expedition section
If your staff members are running the expedition themselves, we can provide a lovely non-commercial campsite in our woods at £5 per person per night. This is ideal for Bronze expeditions, and we can suggest suitable routes and start/finish points for your expedition if required.
Looking for an expedition assessor? Contact WOLT for a list of local volunteer Expedition Assessors who may be willing to help you. If no volunteers are able to help you, you can hire a member of WOLT staff at the rate of £150 per day.
We can assist your DofE Manager or co-ordinator with all aspects of the running and organisation of your DofE provision – from providing a qualified expedition leader to a full administrational back-up service to take the pressure off your school staff.
