Technical Advice

Do you need advice and guidance to help run your DofE Expedition section within your school or organisation? Are you responsible for off-site visits and educational trips? Do you wonder if you’re following current and best practice?

Wayahead Training can provide a comprehensive service offering practical advice in the running of your outdoor activities. We don’t believe that undue concerns over health and safety should be a barrier for young people enjoying the outdoors and having meaningful and developmental experiences.

  • Conducting site visits and recces
  • Recording observations and risk assessments
  • Equipment selection, storage, and maintenance
  • Critical incident and emergency procedure planning
  • Current and ongoing policy and procedure appraisal and advice
  • Staff competency assessments (hill walking & supervision)

Costs for the above consulting services will depend on time, group size and locations.
