For some time now, I have been thinking about leading an Expedition for World Challenge and after submitting the online application form, I was called forward to take part in their potential leaders course. The course is in two parts and a brief summary of each element is given below.
Part 1 (2 days)
The first day of the course is to introduce the company, it’s activities and ethos, facilitation skills training and a little socialising in the evening. The second day provides training to cover the specific workshops that are required as part of a World Challenge expedition.
All went well on the course and and now I’m looking forward to attending the Part 2 Course.
Part 2 (2 days)
The next stage is to work with a group completing their training weekend under the watchful eye of a mentor. I was asked to deliver a wide range of topics as well as supervising the group cooking and team challenges as they undertake two hill walks while carrying expedition packs.
The feedback that I had from the course was good and look forward to leading my first expedition for World Challenge.
