Duke of Edinburgh

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (DofE) is a voluntary, non-competitive programme of activities for anyone aged 14-24. Doing their DofE gives young people the opportunity to experience new activities or develop existing skills.

There are three progressive levels of programmes which, when successfully completed, lead to a bronze, silver or gold award. Young people create their own DofE programme by choosing volunteering, physical and skills activities, going on an expedition and, for their gold only, taking part in a residential activity.

Within Scouting, this links directly to the chief scout’s platinum, diamond and Queen’s scout awards.

The DofE is delivered through a number of licensed providers, of which The Scout Association is one of the largest in the country.

The minimum ages of entry are as follows:

  • Bronze 14 years
  • Silver 15 years
  • Gold 16 years
