DofE Expedition Assessors’ Accreditation Course

The DofE provides a nationally recognised Accreditation Scheme for Expedition Assessors (EAAS). The aim of the EAAS is to prepare and accredit Assessors to undertake expedition assessments.

The Expedition Assessor Accreditation Scheme (EAAS) provides the opportunity for new Expedition Assessors to become accredited by the DofE and nationally recognised. The programme has been designed to provide Expedition Assessors with a clear and consistent understanding of their role and responsibilities. You will have a chance to engage with your peers to establish a positive and supportive approach to the assessment process.

Pre-course Requirements

All participants should complete the DofE online e-induction knowledge check and the Expedition Assessor online pre-course learning, and bring letters of completion to the course. These can be found here.

On receipt of your application you will be sent further information and a delegate application form (EAAS/3). Please fill in your details and sections A and B of the form and bring it with you.

Following this one day course, you will be required to complete a supported assessment within two years in order to complete the accreditation process.
