South West Mountain and Moorland Walking and Camping
Dorset’s Outdoor Education Service offers a range of training opportunities for people involved in The Duke of Edinburgh's Award. In the main, these concentrate on the Award itself, and the DofE’s Expedition section and the skills that Leaders need to safely organise and supervise young people outdoors. Please note that whilst all of the courses are aimed at those delivering the DofE, opportunities such as the Coastal & Countryside and Summer Moorland Leader courses are suitable for all those wishing to develop outdoor leadership skills. Courses are open to all, they are not exclusively for Dorset leaders.
