Clean up with the DofE

cleaning up the woods

Spring is here and it's the perfect time for your participants to give your local area a spring clean as part of a volunteering project. The expedition season is also underway for many. Check out the revised 20 Conditions for the Expedition section - and be sure to include caring for the countryside in your training for participants.

Supporting their future

With many participants facing tough decisions – to stay in education, do an apprenticeship or go to work – remind them how their DofE Award will help make their application stand out. Share our video featuring four Award holders to show how they can relate their DofE skills and activities to the course or job they’d like to apply for.

20 Conditions changes

Following the Bronze expedition changes in 2018 we’ve updated the 20 Conditions of the Expedition section. We’ve also, in response to feedback, made several changes to address the most common quality issues that arise during expeditions at all levels. Find out more about the changes, and download a copy of the new 20 Conditions.

Do you have young people who wish to do their Gold DofE, but you cannot offer it? Young people aged over 18, and who cannot access the DofE locally, can do their programme independently through DofE Direct. Please pass the website details onto anyone who may find this useful.
