It is best practice that organisations running Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (DofE) expeditions should receive technical advice from a Competent person to advise on safety (Often called a Technical Advisor or TA). Indeed it is a legal requirement for commercial organisations running adventurous activites in remote terrain in the UK. Many schools can receive technical advice through their local authority or may have the skills in house.
Lupine Adventure Co-op have over a decade of experience of running Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (DofE) expeditions and can use this experience to offer your organisation technical advice. We can review your risk assessments and standard operating procedures to help you to bring them into line with current best practice and produce a document that you can genuinely work to, to provide safe, appropriately staffed expeditions.
We don’t charge a retainer for our technical advisor service, we simply charge an hourly rate for blocks of work that are done on an as and when basis.
