What is the DofE Award?
An opportunity to develop skills, help the community and improve your fitness, the DofE Award is a programme which is available for 14-25 year olds all over the world. There is 4 units to complete at each level, along with a residential section at Gold level. It can take between 3 and 18 months (if not more) to work through the volunteering, skill, physical and expedition sections. Activities such as volunteering at your local charity shop, learning to play an instrument or joining a sports team to name but a few.
Please visit the DofE website if you want to find out more, where you will find a lot more information on each section, as well as resources and FAQ's.
