Levels

If you’re in year 9 or over, then you can begin – just ask Mr Deal or Mr Williams and they will help you get started.

There are three levels which, when successfully completed, lead to a Bronze, Silver or Gold DofE Award. And it’s never too late to get in on the action – depending on your age you may be able to jump straight in at the Silver level!

There are four sections at Bronze and Silver level and five at Gold:

  • Volunteering – Get involved providing services to individuals or the community and make a difference to other people’s lives
  • Physical – Get active and improve your skills and fitness in sport, dance or other physical activities – it’s your choice
  • Skills – Find new interests and get new talents (or perfect existing ones), with increased practical and social skills
  • Expedition – Get outdoors and plan, train for and complete an adventurous journey in the UK or abroad – an unbeatable experience
  • Residential – Only at Gold level. Getting to the Gold level is a big deal and this last stage could see you going to another country, sharing tasks and activities with people you’ve never met. It’ll test your mettle, and set you up for what life throws at you in the future

Go for Gold!

It’s not a walk in the park. You’ll get your DofE Award through persistence and commitment. Over time you’ll develop personally and welcome each new challenge. At the end of it all you’ll have the world’s leading achievement award for young people under your belt, recognised by employers and universities alike.

But there’s one person who’ll truly appreciate that achievement the most – you.
