EPA is a membership organisation for the overseas youth expedition sector, and is the awarding body for the Learning Outside the Classroom (LOtC) badge.
Since EPA was formed in 2003 it has been working hard to promote best practice in the schools and youth expeditions sector.
EPA membership is made up of UK-based expedition providers catering for young adults under 25 in full-time education. By joining EPA, members become part of a network of industry professionals available for consultation on a wide range of issues.
