ETA is proud to deliver the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award, the Adventurous Journey section. We encourage a sense of adventure and discovery whilst undertaking a team journey or expedition to truly unique destinations. As part of a small team, participants plan, train for and undertake a journey with a purpose in an unfamiliar environment.
ETA provides participants with the opportunity to learn more about the wider environment, as well as to develop their self-confidence, team work and health. Participants are taken out of their comfort zone but kept within a safe and secure setting, achieved through suitable training and supervision.
