The DofE’s a life-changing programme that offers students the opportunity to learn new skills for work and life, get fitter, make a difference and broaden their horizons. It is a nationally recognised programme with millions of young people involved across the UK.
On the award you will have to complete three sections, volunteering, physical and skills. There are loads of activities to choose from and almost anything can count towards your DofE. Maybe you want to try something new? Or get better at something you already do? Your DofE can be whatever you want it to be. Activities for each DofE section take a minimum of one hour a week over a set period of time, so they can fit in around your studies and life outside school.
D of E has not stopped and the programme has been adapted to continue during the Covid 19 restrictions. The programme is currently being offered to Year 9 and 10 with students working towards a certificate until expeditions can restart to allow the completion of the Bronze Award.
