About the DofE...

You can do DofE programmes at three levels, Bronze, Silver or Gold, all of which lead to a Duke of Edinburgh's Award. You achieve an Award by completing a personal programme of activities in four sections (five if you're going for Gold).

The Duke of Edinburgh's Award sections are:

  •      Volunteering - helping someone, your community or the environment
  •      Physical - becoming fitter through sport, dance or fitness activities
  •      Skills - developing existing talents or trying something new
  •      Expedition - planning, training for and completing an adventurous journey
  •      Residential (Gold only) - staying and working away from home as part of a team

(The length of time you have to spend on each section depends on the level of DofE programme you're doing)

DofE Bronze for age 14+

DofE Silver for age 15+

DofE Gold for age 16+
