DofE is an internationally recognised award. It is a voluntary activity (for young people and helpers) and takes real commitment and dedication over a long period of time. It is open for young people aged 14 – 25 years. In our school we usually meet once per week after school.There are 3 Levels: Bronze, Silver and Gold and 4 sections in each level: Physical, Voluntary, Skills and Expedition
All DofE programmes are driven by the following 10 guiding principles:
– Non competitive
– Achievable by all
– Personal development
– Achievement focused
– Demand commitment
