Any young person can do their DofE – regardless of ability, gender, background or location. Achieving an Award isn’t a competition or about being first. It’s all about setting personal challenges and pushing personal boundaries.
Through a DofE programme you will have fun, make friends, improve your self-esteem and build your confidence. You gain essential skills and attributes for work and life such as resilience, problem-solving, team-working, communication and drive – all these are perfect for enhancing your CV and for including in university and job applications. Top employers recognise the work-ready skills Award holders bring to their business.
