DofE Direct


DofE Direct is a way to complete your DofE programme if you do not have a local Licensed Organisation (LO) such as a school or youth group. DofE Direct can bring the DofE to you!

DofE Direct is run through eDofE, the DofE’s online record system. By using eDofE you can access your account at any time and add a range of evidence to demonstrate your completion of your sections. You will be supported by a DofE Leader by phone,  email and on eDofE.  So, if you are aged 18-23 years old and want to achieve your Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, then DofE Direct might be for you!

Your DofE Direct Leader will be there to support you throughout the process and you can contact them when you need to.

There is a nominal cost to join DofE Direct.  With this you will receive a Welcome Pack, participation place, welcome email letter and, upon completion, your badge/brooch and the opportunity to attend a Gold Award Presentation where you will be presented with your certificate.  Here you will also have the opportunity to listen to celebrity speakers and meet HRH The Duke of Edinburgh or HRH The Earl of Wessex.

In the month after you first sign up your Leader will happily spend up to an hour a week assisting you remotely with your programme. Your leader will help you choose and source appropriate activities that meet DofE criteria. After this initial month you will receive at least one email or phone call from your Leader. This does not affect how often you can contact your Leader with your own questions and queries.
