Sectional Certificates & Certificate of Achievement

Sectional Certificates

It is a huge achievement to complete The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, but each section is a milestone to be celebrated in itself. Sectional certificates recognise your hard work and commitment throughout your DofE journey.

We will shortly be introducing a functionality on eDofE where you will be able to download Sectional certificates from eDofE to mark the achievement of each section. As soon as any section of your Award receives its final approval, you will be able to download your certificate either through your eDofE account, or the DofE app. Upon completion of your DofE Award you will have access to a certificate for each of the completed sections of the Award, along with the overall certificate to celebrate the completion of that award level.

Certificate of Achievement

Completing multiple sections of an Award deserves recognition and your Leader can choose to celebrate this achievement by awarding you with a Certificate of Achievement if you have completed any three sections of your Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.

The Certificate of Achievement recognises your dedication to your programme and everything you’ve achieved through these 3 sections. It can be added to your CV or personal statement, helping highlight the many skills and useful experiences you’ve gained.

We absolutely encourage you to continue your programme and complete the final sections of your DofE Award if you’re able to as all sections provide hugely valuable experiences that develop vital skills and character. We understand that sometimes completing all sections may not be possible for you, hence offering the Certificate of Achievement.

We know you’re achieving incredible things throughout your DofE journey, not just at the completion of your Award – and we want to celebrate that with our new ‘My Achievements’ page in eDofE, launching 18 April. This feature allows you to easily view your Award certificates and sectional certificates as soon as they’ve been approved on eDofE. Plus, they’ll all be conveniently stored online for whenever you need them.

For more information about ‘My Achievements’ and how to navigate the new pages before the launch, take a look at our guidance video.
