Wild Country and Expedition location: If your expedition is taking place in a DofE wild
country area, you will be asked to select the appropriate option from the drop menu. If your
expedition is not in a wild country area, you will need to type the area in which the expedition
is taking place. If your expedition is taking place overseas, please enter the country in which
your expedition is taking place.
Expedition start point: If your expedition is in the UK you will be required to enter either a
full postcode or a 6 figure grid reference (including sheet reference). The help button on the

eDofE Mapping link to find a grid reference, alternatively, you can use an online map (for
example Google Maps or Bing maps) to find out your postcode.
If your expedition is overseas, please enter the area that the expedition is taking place in (this does not need to be a postcode or a grid reference).

full postcode or a 6 figure grid reference (including sheet reference).

You can either select from the list, or type in the assessor's name yourself. The assessor's name will be displayed in red if they were:
- Not selected from the drop-down list

- Not affiliated with your organisation
Expedition aim: In this field, leaders are able to enter the participant’s expedition team aim,
this will be added to each participant that you select (please note that this is only compulsory
for Qualifying expeditions).
