To summarise

  • First you Register for DofE, log on to eDofE using the app, and set your password – please note it down.  For each section, you choose what you are going to do, and ask someone to assess you.
  • For Volunteering, Physical and Skills, you upload a list of what you do, and other ‘evidence’ like photos, then at the end your Assessor uploads a report to say you have completed it.   Each section will be ‘approved’ by a DofE leader (often a leader from your Unit or District).
  • Your Expedition will be organised by SEEE or, for many Bronzes, by their Unit or District.
  • When all 4 sections are complete (5 for Gold), you should get your Award certificate and badge.
