Duke of Edinburgh Planning

Delivering the Duke of Edinburgh syllabus in a way that ‘makes sense’, our planning sessions teach you the knowledge needed to succeed on your practice and qualifying journeys. This helps you survive and thrive in New Zealand's great outdoors.


Planning sessions

Once you’ve got the knowledge and skills relevant to your level, it’s time to prepare for your practice journey. Putting pen to paper, you and your teammates will plan every aspect of your Bronze, Silver or Gold expedition – from gear lists to routes. At the end of the planning session, you’ll be ready to embark on your practice journey.

It is essential that the group meets their Assessor/Supervisor team before embarking on their Journey and in this case “before” means a matter of days or weeks, preferably during the planning stages.
