For all our expeditions we provide a weekend of Teacher and Leader training, held in the spring of the year of departure.
This weekend is an excellent opportunity for Teachers and their Expedition Leaders to work together without their student team and find out more details about expedition safety, overcoming challenges, facilitating personal development and working effectively as an adult leadership team.
Attendance is invaluable as it really helps to strengthen the working relationship between the two parties. The ability of the Teacher and Leader to work together effectively is key to the success of the expedition.
This weekend covers company policy, looks at issues and past challenges and how to mitigate those, allows for open discussion between all parties, includes an element of CPD and allows vital time with the company Doctor, Director(s) and Expedition Managers of Wilderness Expertise. It’s also a great chance to spend some time socialising with a group of like minded individuals.
Wilderness Expertise works in close partnership with our sister organisation Training Expertise which focuses on safety and first aid training courses for adults. As a teacher with Wilderness Expertise you will qualify for a discount on their courses and further details are given below:
