Celebrating achievement

Sectional certificates can be awarded whenever a participant completes a section of their programme. These can be excellent motivational tools to keep up the momentum of participation in a DofE programme, especially for those young people who take longer to complete than others. Available from DofE Essentials through eDofE.
