Duke of Edinburgh's Award

The Duke of Edinburgh's award, also known as DofE, is a life-changing adventure you don’t want to miss. 

It’s about going the extra mile! Learning new skills for work and life, getting fitter, making a difference and broadening your horizons. The coronavirus doesn’t mean your DofE needs to stop.

You can start your volunteering, physical and skills sections from home or remotely using the DofE website.

There are various levels of programme which when completed lead to a Bronze, Silver or Gold DofE Award, check our DofE page for more information and information on how to enrol.
