I'm looking at becoming a D of E Expedition Assessor to help out some D of E groups that I have occasionally worked with. The problem seems to be that the people in power at the D of EI have contacted seem to suggest that it is a very complex procedure blah blah blah.
I'm an ML and have things like a recent CRB check done on me (by one of the colleges I have been helping). I've also done the two lots of online learning from the D of E websites (as trivial as they are, they seem to be required). What should I do next?
I'd really like to be able to help with a Gold Assessment in end of March. The college is helping me as much as they can, but I'm not sure they really understand the assessor accreditation procedure.
The daft thing is, everyone I've spoke to says they need more assessors, but for some reason, I don't seem to be able to navigate through the paperwork (a houlie during a white out at night is no problem in comparison). Any advice greatfully received!
