OTHER SECTIONS




Volunteering, Physical & Skills sections - the same for all awards 
(plus a Residential section just for the Gold award)
  • Find an activity for each section.  In many cases, it is very obvious under which section a particular activity would sit, but some activities sit under more than one section, so it is worth a look at the relevant pages on the DofE website (VolunteeringPhysical & Skills) to help in your decision making.  (Plus, there is plenty of useful information on the DofE website, and some useful downloads to help you make sure that you are doing the right thing!)
  • Submit your activity on the eDofE website for approval by Mr Robson or Mr Jenvey.  (If you do not know how to do this, then ask!)
  • When approved, start your activity.  (Please wait for approval - it will be incredibly frustrating to spend time doing something that can't, in the end, be used towards your award!)
  • When completed, you and your assessor need to fill in the relevant pages in your DofE logbook, then take photos of them and upload them to your eDofE account for ratification by Mr Robson or Mr Jenvey.

The lengths of time that you are required to be doing these sections changes by award, so please check what is actually required for your award before you start:

Bronze3 months of activity is required for 2 of these sections and 6 months for the third (it's your choice which you do for longer!)

Silver   -  6 months of activity is required for 2 of these sections and 9 months for the third (it's your choice which you do for longer!)

Gold     9 months of activity is required for 2 of these sections and 12 months for the third (it's your choice which you do for longer!)
          -   5 days of a Residential activity is required, but do not do anything about this without talking to Mr Robson
