You can achieve an Award by completing a personal programme of activities in four sections at Bronze Silver and Gold level

  • Volunteering: undertaking service to individuals or the community.
  • Physical: improving in an area of sport, dance or fitness activities.
  • Skills: developing practical and social skills and personal interests.
  • Expedition: planning, training for and completion of an adventurous journey in the UK or abroad.
 
At Gold level, you must do an additional Residential section, which involves working and staying away from home doing a shared activity.
 
Once you have filled in your form you will be registered and given an ‘e-DofE’ login to record and upload your evidence.
 
You can start volunteering, learning a new skill and taking part in a physical activity straight away.
 
Make sure you record all your evidence, photos, video clips, write ups in each section, about your ‘journey’ what you have learned, how you have improved,
 
For further information speak to your Tutor or the Youth Support Team and Sport Activators in the common room to get involved.
