Going for Gold (and silver) under the new government guidelines.

Duke of Edinburgh students from The Cheadle and Marple College completed their practice Gold and Silver expeditions under the new government guidelines.

The College is the first educational establishment to complete an expedition in the North of England since the COVID-19 outbreak.

Staff took part in the ‘DofE with a difference’ online training session last week led by the DofE to ready them for this new style expedition.

Students operated in designated ‘bubbles’ in order to observe the current social distancing rules.

The expedition was a great success with 25 students successfully completing their practice expedition. It was lovely to see our students again and to engage with the local community once more.
