Description:
The "Getting the most from the DofE" sessions aim to introduce young people to the opportunities which the DofE brings. We look at the various sections of the DofE programme as well as how to use the DofE App. Each session has specific learning outcomes which can be read on the Teams Channel. Students can attend a single session or the whole series. Sessions will be delivered on Friday mornings at a time convenient to the learners.

  • Session 1: DofE - so what' it all about? This workshop will explain what the DofE is and how you can get involved. It will outline what is expected at the various levels of a programme.
  • Session 2: Introduction to Volunteering Section This workshop will explain the importance of the volunteering section of the DofE as well as the benefits of volunteering and how to plan for their volunteering activity of their DofE programme.

DYW Context:
The DofE helps young people to build a life-long belief in themselves, supporting them to take on their own challenges, follow their passions, and discover talents they never knew they had. It provides young people with a framework to explore their personal strength and weaknesses. It gives them opportunities to consider their response to global and local issues.

Additional Requirements:
Schools must be offering the DofE.
