At Challenge Expeditions we pride ourselves on not only being able to provide services to young people, schools and youth groups but also to businesses. The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is becoming an increasingly popular method to develop the younger workforce because of the wide range of skills that are needed in order to complete the Award.
With the DofE now generating a minimum of £32 million in social return every year taking part in the Award could be a great opportunity for you to boost your involvement in the local community and to promote your services. Working with Challenge Expeditions is the perfect way of complementing your corporate social responsibility enabling you to give something back to those communities important to you.
The corporate aspect to Challenge Expeditions supports businesses to develop their staff team as well as supporting the local community. From large clean up projects to rebuilding communities in Africa the options are endless. Challenge Expeditions will work to create a programme that fits in with you and achieves your goals.
Many large companies are now starting to see the benefits of including the DofE programme into their apprenticeship and trainee schemes. With the Award developing teamwork, self confidence, self belief, initiative and many more skills its hard to see why it wouldn’t benefit your company.
