Duke of Edinburgh - Getting Started
Mon 27th Nov 6 p.m. FREE - All you need to know to get going with DofE
Monday 27th November, 6 p.m. This is a free meeting for young people (parents etc. welcome too on this occasion) interested in doing their Duke of Edinburgh's Award alongside other home-educators (+we can probably smuggle in a few school-educators who have friendship groups through our online classes). DofE is the most widely recognised extra-curricular activity for young people, and the expeditions section is a great way of creating and strengthening friendships while enjoying the outdoors. We have a Bronze and Silver expedition programme scheduled with our sibling company, Outspark on...
