The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award has been described as a “a life-changing experience”. It is a personal programme of activities, set up in 1956 (1958 for girls) to “inspire, guide and support young people in their self-development and recognise their achievements.” It is an internationally recognised award which is highly respected by employers and universities alike. It provides the tools to develop essential skills for future life and work whilst giving students an opportunity to make new friends and experience an exhilarating adventure.

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award consists of three levels: Bronze open to year 9’s, Silver open to year 10’s and Gold open to year 12 and 13. It will take between six and eighteen months to complete, depending on the level and you have until your 25th birthday to complete the award. Each level is divided into four sections (five if you are doing Gold): volunteering, skill, physical recreation and the expedition itself.

DofE User Guide for Participants

Choosing an assessor

For each section that you complete you will need an assessor. This is someone who can verify and support you during your time doing that particular activity. An assessor should fulfil the following criteria:

  • NOT a family member
  • An expert in that given area e.g. a coach of that sport
  • Willing to monitor/ support the student throughout their activities and help them achieve their goals/ objectives.
  • Willing to submit an assessor’s report (see below) at the end of the designated time

Each week you should upload some evidence of what you have been doing. This can be in the form of a photo, video (limited capacity), text or other e.g. PDF file.

Alternatively, you can manually fill in an activity log sheet each week which can be uploaded at the end of your timescale.

For electronic copies please see the DofE website- https://www.dofe.org/do/activitylogs/

Assessors reports

Every week your assessor should touch base with you to ensure that you are on task and achieving or working towards your goals. At the end of the designated time (3, 6, 12 or 18 months) the assessor should then complete an assessor’s report. This can be done on paper or electronically by logging on to https://edofe.org/Assessor

To pass the section the report must include:

  • The student’s name
  • The activity
  • The assessor’s name and position i.e. what makes you able to comment on the student’s work?
  • Dates that they have attended i.e. has your son/ daughter actually completed 6 months?
  • A comment on their attitude/ dedication/ motivation/ progress
  • The assessor’s signature or if electronic they will need to provide an email address
