Approved Activity Providers (CE)

Approved Activity Providers (AAP) are organisations, both commercial and charitable whose Expedition, Residential or Volunteering section opportunities have been approved by the DofE as meeting our sectional conditions and can count towards the achievement of your Award. AAPs are able to provide assessors and sign off your section.

You can confidently use these organisations but please remember that it is your Operating Authority which has the final say on the suitability of a programme in terms of health and safety requirements and the DofE can give no assurances as to the financial stability of an AAP. Always remember to let your Licensed Organisation know you are using an AAP and ensure that notification/health and safety approval paperwork is submitted where appropriate.

Alternatively, the list below shows AAPs based in this Region. These AAPs may deliver to a much wider area and accept any DofE participant onto their opportunities. There is also a list for the large national providers.
