Why the DofE is important to us
The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award has a strong track-record of developing well-rounded, caring young people, which are attributes we look for in our employees to deliver top customer service. We have joined forces with them to give our young apprentices the best start to their career.

Doing my DofE allowed me to practically apply what I had learnt in theory. As a result, the skills became embedded in me and I still use them today. Now I work in a team. DofE showed me having patience and trust in my teammates, allows us to communicate and work together effectively. Achieving our goals together.
