To guide us, we follow the standards set by BS8848 "Specifications for visits, fieldwork, expeditions and adventurous activities outside the UK". Gapforce is also a Duke of Edinburgh Approved Activity Provider (AAP), and we are members of Year Out Group who set guidelines and policy for UK Gap Year providers. More information on the steps we take to manage risk and improve safety can be found here: Safety and Support.
On expedition, you will be looked after by one of our highly trained and qualified Expedition Leaders. Gapforce Expedition Leaders are a key element of our overall safety provision. The majority of our Leaders have been through our rigorous three month Expedition Leader Training Course where they have been taught and assessed in areas including RGS Off-site safety management, water safety, wilderness first aid, rescue training, and incident management.
We have experience of working with schools from across the UK and abroad. The engaging and meaningful experiences we were able to provide their students often brings them back to us for future trips. Feedback from past school trips can be found here and we would be happy to provide teacher references from schools we have worked with in the past.
