DofE – the basics

What you need to know

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award allows young people to have their activities and achievements recognised.  We offer it as part of Scouting in South East Scotland Region, and it counts towards the Chief Scout’s Award (Platinum and Diamond) and the King’s Scout Award. Please take a little time to learn about DofE from the links provided on this page.  You can start with an outline of how to do DofE with SEEE (South East Explorer Expeditions).
