Duke of Edinburgh Award partnership

The  Hull University D of E group is student-led and required a qualified first aider and Mountain Leader to supervise their practice and qualifying gold expeditions.

Pocklington School D of E leaders helped the group organise their practice expedition in the Yorkshire Dales which involved four days and three overnight camps and will supervise them on their qualifying expedition to Scotland in June.

In order to complete the expeditions, the group needed to undergo training in expedition skills, including map reading, camp craft etc, which was taught by the Pocklington School D of E trainers.

Aims

This partnership has allowed the Hull University D of E group to fulfil their personal goal of completing their Gold Award.

Frequency

The Hull University D of E group is hoping to continue, with the assistance from the D of E trainers from Pocklington School.
