If you are new to DofE we suggest you start as a Direct Silver entry and then hopefully go onto Gold.  If you already have your Bronze then you can easily start your Silver with us.

We are here to help every day with advice and suggestions.  Many of the teaching staff are willing to act as assessors and have in the past worked with candidates on challenges including cooking, computer building, photography and art.

We work very closely with AOA Ltd of Standish who provide excellent expedition training sessions leading to a practice expedition and finally a qualifying expedition.

The DofE gives you the chance to do something completely new and improve on things you’re already doing. It takes you out of your comfort zone and into a place where you’ll push yourself and have amazing new experiences. You’ll build confidence, resilience, skills for work and friendship groups. And you’ll have a brilliant time doing it.

What could this award lead to?

Looking forward, the DofE can help you to carve out a better future. Colleges, universities and employers regard a DofE Award highly so it will help to open the right doors for you. If you’re keen to get off the sofa and put 100% into something that could change your life, the DofE is for you.
