GWOBR EFYDD / BRONZE AWARD

Ysgolion & Grwpiau / Schools & Groups

AALA White

To improve accessibility of the award scheme, a 'Practice Expedition' is NO LONGER REQUIRED to be completed prior to the 'Qualifying Expedition'. The Bronze Training Framework has been updated to emphasise the need for participants to ‘understand and demonstrate’ specific skills before their qualifying expedition. 

The DofE scheme hope that by increasing the opportunities of having a more positive experience in the great outdoors as a result of these changes, more young people will be motivated to continue their DofE experience by progressing to the Silver Award level.

In response TIME4EXPERIENCE offer two packages for Schools & Groups (see below)
