This Adventure Development program focuses on building your ‘soft skills’ and leadership attributes. Focused placements in your development areas will help forge the skills required to move onto a future instructional leadership role. Leadership skills will develop further on a 2 day ‘Practice Journey’ and then in the planning for the 8-day ‘Qualifying Journey’ canoe trip. This achieves the Duke of Edinburgh’s Adventurous Journey at the Gold Award Level.
