Do your Duke of Edinburgh (DofE)
If you're in S3, or are between 14 and 25 years of age, you can undertake your DofE award at one of 3 levels - Bronze, Silver or Gold.
To do this you will need to sign up through one of our Duke of Edinburgh Centres and, with the support of your leader, choose a range of activities to undertake.
There are 3 main categories of activities:
You need to do an average of 1 hour per week for each activity and have a nominated assessor who can support you through through your goals. They will write a report for you at the end of your timescale that will allow you to complete the section. An assessor can't be a family member but could be a neighbour, friend of the family, youth worker, coach etc.
Each level also requires that you complete an adventurous journey as part of a team - this is your Expedition. We will help you with the training to get you ready for this, and will support groups to complete once social distancing allows.
At Gold level, there is also a Residential section that you must complete.
