INTRODUCTION

Outdoor and adventurous expeditions are used by most of the Uniformed Public Services; particularly the Armed Forces, to develop the skills and values essential for effective teamwork. They provide opportunities for individuals and organisations to understand how they perform in difficult and arduous conditions.

This workbook serves as a record of activities, development of skills, reflection, future plans and also includes witness statements to be completed by tutors or lecturers. Careful completion of this workbook in relation to the activities carried out will provide evidence to support the learning outcomes for the module. It should be completed with your own work and you may include photos and diagrams as you feel appropriate. You should complete the workbook electronically and will need to ask staff and tutors to complete witness statements for the relevant sections. It is best to complete sections as you work your way through the module and build a portfolio as you go along; while things are fresh in your mind.

You will need to submit a hard copy of your workbook by the submission deadline relevant for your group.

Learning Outcomes for this Module: 1. Know the types of expedition 2. Be able to plan expeditions 3. Be able to undertake expeditions 4. Be able to review their planning and undertaking of expeditions

The marking criteria (P1, M1, D1, etc.) relevant for each section of the workbook are clearly indicated and a table is included at the back of this workbook for you to refer to.

If you have any questions about completing this workbook

SECTION 4
REVIEW OF EXPEDITIONS

P5: Carry out a review of the planning and undertaking of expeditions, identifying strengths and areas for improvement.
Now that you have planned and undertook your two expeditions, you must now review them. This process is important to allow you to be able to reflect, learn from it and hopefully build on and improve your performance next time. You need to think about both your groups and your personal strengths and areas for improvement.

Fill in the tables below with as much detail as possible – make sure you give a reason or example for the areas you identify.

P6: Produce a personal development plan based on identified strengths and areas for improvement.
Using the areas for improvement you have identified within your reviews for P5, you now need to produce a personal development plan to ensure you improve for future expeditions. This will allow you to reflect on the areas where something needed to be improved and think about what you could do/ put in place to make sure next time around there is a marked improvement.

Fill in the table below with as much detail as possible – make sure your ideas are realistic.

|Area for improvement |What are you going to do to improve? |

M5: Explain identified strengths and areas for improvement and relate them to suggestions made in personal development plan.
Produce a written piece of work below that explains the reasons behind the strengths and areas for improvement you identified within your reviews. Relate this back to the suggestions you made in your personal development plan, by explaining how they are relevant and link in.

D2: Justify suggestions made in personal development plan.
Thinking about the suggestions you have made in your personal development plan for how to improve on your areas for improvement; you must now go on to justify them.
Consider asking yourself: Why have you suggested it? How is it going to allow you to improve? Is it realistic? If it did not work, could there be something else you could try? Overall do you believe it would allow you to make the marked improvements you are hoping for?
