Participants plan towards and then undertake several unaccompanied, self-reliant journeys in a group.  At Bronze level we use local countryside (Rutland and Leicestershire), at Silver level we go to more remote areas (southern Peak District and Shropshire Hills) and at Gold level we journey into ‘wild country’ (northern Peak District, Brecon Beacons and Dartmoor).  Participants begin working more closely with a staff member but by the time of their assessed expedition they are ready to journey unaccompanied with just spot checks from leaders.
