Sam Sykes Ltd


The experts in DofE expeditions

Description

The Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme has changed the lives of thousands of young people across the UK, its combination of personal development, challenge and achievement making it a unique experience. The importance of the scheme is undeniable, but the ever-increasing demands for Health and Safety and risk assessment make it difficult for schools and youth organisations to offer it with confidence.

Sam Sykes™ Ltd was set up to reverse this trend by delivering professionally led Duke of Edinburgh award expeditions across the UK and overseas. With over thirty years' experience in organising and leading DofE Award expeditions at BRONZE, SILVER and GOLD level, the Sam Sykes™ team understands the importance of safety in all areas of expeditions. The combination of practical experience, legislative knowledge and a thirst for adventure allows the Sam Sykes™ team to deliver bespoke DofE expeditions that will challenge participants without ever compromising their safety. Sam Sykes™ has run expeditions across the UK, including the Lake District, Peak District and North Wales, as well as across Europe and the rest of the world.

The benefits of using Sam Sykes'™ professional expedition service are clear. Young people taking part in the scheme enjoy a challenging and affirming experience delivered by dedicated and qualified leaders. Schools and youth organisations, meanwhile, gain peace of mind from knowing that their expedition groups are in safe hands and that the Sam Sykes™ team has a wealth of experience with the DofE scheme.

Fantastic service throughout all stages of the trip. Staff were professional and responded to any concerns quickly. They are passionate about their product and have the best interests of the students at the core of their ethos. I would recommend this company as a DofE provider.

The students had a great experience of the DofE award at Bronze and Silver (August 2021 - Secondary School)




The training given on the day was well put together and this made the students more confident at the end of the day. The supervision of the groups by staff from Sam Sykes was really good and they were able to adapt the training content to the needs in the groups. (May 2021 - Secondary School)
