Duke of Edinburgh Award

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is recognition of a young person’s successful journey of self-discovery and development, renowned by employers and universities alike for the qualities young people have who’ve achieved a DofE Award.

Its balanced programme of challenging activities and rewarding experiences helps girls to develop in an environment of social interaction and team working.

There are three progressive levels of DofE programmes which, when successfully completed, lead to Bronze, Silver or Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.

To achieve each one participants must complete a programme of activities in four or five sections that involve helping the community/environment, becoming fitter, developing new skills, planning, training for and completing an expedition and, for Gold only, working with a team on a residential activity.

With the help of DofE Leaders, participants select their own programme of activities and set themselves objectives. It’s not a competition or about being first. It’s all about self-development.

If you are aged between 14 and 25, you can get involved.

There is a lot of overlap between DofE programmes and the programme activities you might choose to take part in as a Senior Section member of Girlguiding.
