Burlington Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme

What is the DofE

A life-changing experience. A fun time with friends. An opportunity to discover new interests and talents. A tool to develop essential skills for life and work. A recognised mark of achievement; respected by employers.

The DofE is many things to many people, supporting generations to successfully navigate adult life.

14-24 year-olds can do a DofE programme at one of three progressive levels which, when successfully completed, leads to a Bronze, Silver or Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.

There are four sections to complete at Bronze and Silver level and five at Gold. They 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.

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. For more information about the award check out their webpage dofe.org

Why do DofE at Burlington?

Burlington has run a DofE centre for over 10 years seeing over many young people achieve their awards.

We enable young people to complete all elements of their award including the exhibition training and assessments. Run by a brilliant group of volunteers who bring a large amount of fun and adventure into the sessions. We are a registered centre of DofE and operate safely with safeguarding (you can read our policy here).
