The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (DofE) is a voluntary, non-competitive
programme of activities for anyone aged 14-24.
Doing their DofE gives young people the opportunity to experience new activities or develop existing skills.
There are three progressive levels of programmes which, when
successfully completed, lead to a bronze, silver or gold award.
Young people create their own DofE programme by choosing volunteering, physical and skills activities, going on an expedition and, for their gold only, taking part in a residential activity.
Within Scouting, this links directly to the chief scout’s platinum, diamond and Queen’s scout awards.
The DofE is delivered through a number of licensed providers, of which The Scout Association is one of the largest in the country.
In Ashford District, we have our own DofE unit which you need to sign up with by the end of November.
Expedition training for the following season is held in December and January each year.
