Duke of Edinburgh’s Award

Ideas for keeping up with DofE activities during the coronavirus emergency

The training and expedition sections of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award have obviously been postponed for the foreseeable future.

In the meantime, the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award has launched #DofEwithadifference. Participants are still able to work towards and complete the other three sections of the award.

The table below sets out a range of activity ideas for the physical, skills and volunteering sections of the award. You can also find lots of useful information here: https://www.dofe.org/dofewithadifference/activities

Remember that any activities undertaken must be in line with current government restrictions, particularly with regard to social distancing.

First introduced at Ridgeway in 2012, the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is now an integral part of our enrichment curriculum for students from Year 9 upwards. It offers an outstanding opportunity for young people to master a wide variety of life skills and to test themselves against nationally recognised challenges.

A Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is one that will stand the test of time, developing the qualities and attributes that colleges and employers so value.
