Jane is an Accredited Assessor for the DofE, holds an ML (Summer) Award and has Certificates in Counselling Theory and Counselling Practice; she finds these soft skills come in useful when training expedition hard skills…

As the Administration and Logistics Manager for our DofE expeditions, Jane not only orchestrates the range of support and resources that go into the smooth running of our DofE training and expeditions, but she also loves to get out there training and supervising teams or Course Directing to support our teams of leaders in the field…
