If you need further staff for your current expeditions, we can provide DofE Supervisors and Accredited Assessors only.
RAW Adventures place a high priority in placing excellent staff to work with our DofE groups. Both Kate and Ross are experienced in planning and delivering high standards of DofE training as well as holding a comprehensive understanding of the requirements of the Supervisor and Assessor and the practical implications of providing these roles on the ground.
Kate and Ross are both Accredited Assessors up to Gold level. RAW Adventures does also use other staff to work with teams, who will also hold relevant experience, qualifications and a shared desire to work with young people and foster their confidence, personal development and an improvement in skills.
When working with young people, their safety and well-being is at the forefront of what we do and we shape our approach and style of supervising and instruction to support this. We will allow teams to make non-consequential mistakes where we think it will highlight and help them learn from certain situations.
We will monitor teams more closely if we believe they are feeling too challenged at times and will facilitate them coming to their own decisions and conclusions to then improve their practice for next time.
With regards to providing DofE Assessors, we respect this very important role within an Award programme and will always provide an Assessor who is not only well experienced in providing their role, but who is also friendly, supportive, approachable and professional with every group they work with, at whatever level.
We ensure the 20 conditions for the Expedition section are met and fully support the team of young people on their way to a successful expedition.
