Duke of Edinburgh Award

I am an accredited assessor (Gold award) for the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme.  Please contact me if I can assist in assessing any expeditions.

I also offer kayaking or SUP as part of the skills or physical sections for the awards. Activities need to average an hour a week, with the first and last sessions being the full section duration apart. The timescales for each level of award are below.
