Sport / Outdoor AdventureEntertain MeHealthVolunteerLearning & CareersAdvice & Information

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (DofE) is a real adventure from beginning to end. It doesn’t matter who you are or where you are from, you just need to be aged between 14 and 17 (up to 24 for young people with additional needs) and ready to jump into the best time of your life! Come along to the Watford DofE sessions which are held every Monday (term-time only) from 5pm-7pm.

Why should you get involved?
Achieving a Duke of Edinburgh's Award will give you skills, confidence and a view on life that everyone is looking for: from employers to colleges and even universities. It’s also about getting recognised for doing things you want to do - and may even be doing already. Above all, it’s great fun in an environment that will give you the necessary skills for life and work.

What's involved in the Duke of Edinburgh's Award?
Ideally you will start off at Bronze Level and work your way through progressively to Silver and even Gold Levels.

What makes up the Duke of Edinburgh's Award?
There are four elements:

  • Volunteering – undertaking service to individuals or the community
  • Physical – improving in an area of sport, dance or fitness activities
  • Skills – developing practical and social skills and personal interests
  • Expedition – planning, training for and completion of an adventurous journey in the UK or abroad
