DofE Expeditions aim to inspire initiative, team work and a spirit of adventure. The Expedition section involves planning, training for and completing an unaccompanied and self-reliant expedition.

IOWAA is both a DofE centre under the IW Council operating authority and also an accredited DofE Approved Activity Provider based on the Isle of Wight, but we spend much of our time leading expeditions and delivering training across the whole of the UK to individuals, schools, youth groups and teachers.

Our centre is well equipped to run expeditions and training, with our full time office staff, indoor and outdoor classrooms, onsite camping and cafe and well stocked kit stores. We run expedition training, assessed expeditions and supporting courses on fixed dates and we also provide alternative dates on when you need a specific time.

We offer support to schools, groups and individuals who are undertaking this challenging but rewarding award.
