The DofE is…

You achieve an Award by completing a personal programme

of activities in four sections:

  • Volunteering: undertaking service to individuals or the community
  • Physical: improving in an area of sport, dance or fitness activities
  • Skills: developing practical and social skills and personal interests
  • Expedition: planning, training for and completion of an adventurous journey in the UK or abroad

Why do your D of E…

  • …achieving an Award will give you skills, confidence and a view on life that everyone is looking for, from employers to colleges and universities.
  • ...you're getting recognised for doing things you want to do (and may even be doing already).
  • ...you’ll make a difference to other people’s lives and your community, be fitter and healthier, make new friends and have memories to last you a lifetime.

choosing activities
Choosing activities

There is a massive choice of activities that count towards DofE programmes. You can select practically any activity you want – as long as it’s legal and morally acceptable.

  • Activities are placed in specific sections for a reason.
  • You need to choose activities you are going to enjoy.
  • Activities could be something that you are already doing or perhaps one you’ve always wanted to try.
