DofE Award Information

Why do DofE?

For the young people who take part each year, the benefits of achieving a DofE Award at any level are endless. DofE is about helping you along the path to a productive and prosperous future. As many of our participants say, it’s life-changing.

Achieving an Award will give you skills and confidence and something to boast about when you apply for college, university or a job. Beyond your academic achievements, employers and universities want to see evidence of ‘soft skills’ that you have developed through extra-curricular activities, such as communication, commitment, leadership and teamwork. Your DofE Award is a fantastic way to demonstrate and evidence these skills in practice.

You’ll also make a difference to other people’s lives and your community through your volunteering section, be fitter and healthier by completing the physical section, make new friends and have memories to last you a lifetime.

Participants say that doing their DofE gives them character traits like confidence and resilience, that can boost their mental health and wellbeing and help them face and overcome personal challenges.
