What is the DofE Award Scheme?

  • The DofE is a well-known and prestigious national award certified by HRH Prince Phillip, the Duke of Edinburgh.

You achieve an award by completing a personal programme of activities in four sections:

  • Volunteering: undertaking service to individuals or the community. 
  • Physical: improving 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.
  • At Gold level, you must do an additional Residential section, which involves working and staying away from home doing a shared activity.
