For Silver DofE, do you have go and find other people doing the silver and sort it out yourself, or do the staff provide more assistance.
Speak to your Sqn Staff. A lot of Sqns won’t have the numbers to do Silver Expeds at Sqn level so it is often organised at a Wing or even Regional level.
Generally speaking there are a few options:
A) Your squadron runs silver DofE for cadets within your squadron.
B) Expeditions are provided at a Sector or Cluster level (if you wing has that kind of setup)
C) Your Wing might provide open expeditions where individuals can sign up.
I’d recommend speaking with your squadron staff to figure out what’s on offer for you.
