Your adventure starts here… Discover DofE

Entrust manage the DofE Licence for Staffordshire. We are proud to be able to support young people in achieving their DofE Award.

DofE gives all young people aged 14-24 the chance to develop skills for life, work, fulfill their potential and have a brighter future. You will find yourself helping people from the community, getting fitter and developing a range of skills.

About the award

There are 3 award levels (bronze, silver and gold). You achieve your Award by completing a personal programme of activities in four sections (five if you’re going for gold):

  1. Volunteering
  2. Physical
  3. Skills
  4. Expedition
  5. Residential (gold only).
How do I start my DofE Journey?

Contact the DofE Team at Entrust. Decide what level of DofE programme you would like to do (bronze, silver or gold) linked to your age. Complete a registration form and pay a registration fee to Entrust.

Once you are registered to start your DofE you will receive your online eDofE log in/link via email and a welcome pack in the post - containing helpful information and your DofE Reward Card. You will use this account to record your DofE Activities, upload pictures and keep a track of your progress. When you have completed each section, submit it for approval in your eDofE account. A member of the DofE Team will arrange to meet you to help you set up your account.

Completing the Award

We have created a model which allows young people to access and complete their DofE Award.

There are three ways to complete the DofE:

  1. Via your school (if the school is a direct licence centre)
  2. Via a local DofE volunteer group
  3. Via direct enrollment through Entrust as an independent participant

You can create a unique person programme, which is fun and will give you the vital skills needed for your future work and life.

Entrust will verify your sections and your overall Award when you have completed all the sections. You can get support along the way from the DofE Team at Entrust.

When you achieve your award you’ll receive a badge and certificate.  Remember to tell your Entrust Leader about your plans so you don’t waste your time on activities which won’t count or don’t fit with the right section. Once everything is agreed and in place you’re ready to start your adventure.
