Programme files: The DofE took the decision to remove the detailed ideas for each activity as they were somewhat dated and, in a few cases, contained information that was not current. Information on programme ideas can be found on the DofE website, in The Handbook for DofE Leaders and of course in the Programmes Pack. Participants should work with their Leader and Assessor to agree goals that are relevant to their own situation.
