Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme
Individuals may be able to complete their gold residential section whilst on the programme. Should you be interested in this option, you must contact their School Coordinator as early as possible.
John Muir Awards
During the environmental phase, individuals can work on an environmental programme and compile a report for submission to the John Muir awards.
ASDAN University Award (UA)
Due to the nature of our programmes, every student on our programmes can gain the ASDAN UA. The UA recognises individuals who have been involved in experiential learning and who have developed their own personal skills including working with others, improving own learning and problem solving. Many students have found that the UA has made a significant difference to the outcome of their UCAS application process, either at formal interview stage or to the subsequent offer that has been made.
All participants will receive a Heartstart basic life support certificate.
Before departure your team will have the opportunity of coming together for a weekend training course where you will learn about cultural awareness, DIY skills, personal security and receive a certificated first aid qualification valid for three years.
The day before departure the team will come together at a build-up centre for final briefings, passport and visa checks and a review of their previous training. From there it’s off to the airport and onto the project!
