If you are interested in undertaking your Duke of Edinburgh Award you need to at least be an Explorer and in year 9 to register for Bronze, Year 10 to register for Silver and aged 16 to register for Gold.
1. If you are interested in completing your Bronze, Silver or Gold with us, could you please:
• Email Sarah Fareham West firstname.lastname@example.org or Sue Fareham East Lupton@operamail.com
with your and a parent’s email addresses so that the DofE team can start to send you information and copy your parent in for information.
• Let your Explorer Leader, Network or District Commissioner (as appropriate) know that you have registered to undertake a DofE award. They will then be able to support you in undertaking the further activities required to achieve the Chief Scout’s Award/Queen’s Scout Award associated with the level of DofE that you are undertaking.
• Register on the edofe site when you receive your login and registration details.
• Undertake your planning on the edofe system as soon as you have decided what activities you would like to do for each section. We can then ensure that you do not waste time, effort and money doing something that does not meet the DofE requirements.
Much of the onus on completing your DofE Award falls to you. We provide a comprehensive programme for the expedition section and are available to support you in your Volunteering, Skill and Physical (and Residential at Gold) sections. Please feel free to drop us an email or ring us whenever you have a question or are unclear on something. We will also organise drop-in surgeries where you can come along to talk to us about your activities, planning, uploading evidence or anything else that you need support with. We will let you know about these by email.
Many of you are thinking of next summer and some expedition dates are below. Some additional activities, such as supported route planning evenings will also be set. All dates are compulsory for the DofE level you are planning to undertake.
