There is a parent guide included to explain the award to those who may be new to D of E. This explains the different sections students have to complete to get their final award.
At school we run the expedition section of the award and certificate awards when students have completed their other sections. For each level this is slightly different and is explained in each presentation.
The cost is explained for each award level in the presentation. The majority of the cost goes to our expedition partner Venture Outdoor, who run the expedition section. Some of the cost pays for each participant’s registration fee to the award, and some covers school running costs for the award including the license with D of E.
We offer a 40% discount to any students who are in receipt of Free School meals and the award is offered free of charge for any students in Local Authority Care. Please contact Mr Bradbury if you wish to take up this offer.
Details of the payment schedule for the costs are attached. The initial deposit of £30 must be paid at the point of application before 4th December. This is not refundable if a student drops out once they have been registered.
