What is DofE?
The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is a great adventure from the beginning to the end. DofE is split into three levels, Bronze, Silver and Gold. In order to complete any of these levels it doesn’t matter who you are or where you are from. All you need to be is aged between 14 and 24 and have a desire to get outdoors! Each level increases in length and gets more challenging, but developing individuals skills further.
For each level, Bronze, Silver and Gold, the participants have to complete a personal development program containing the following sections:
- Expedition Section
- Skill Section
- Physical Section
- Volunteering Section
- Residential Section – Gold only
