If you’re able to continue your usual activities at home, you should continue to use your appointed Assessor.
As you’re unlikely to be doing your activity in the usual way, make sure you get in touch to let them know how you’re continuing. You should also contact them about how you would like to stay in touch, and how they can assess your activity remotely.
Some ideas might be:
– Using activity logs to record what you’re doing and send it to your Assessor.
– Taking photos or recording a video of your activity that you can send to your Assessor as evidence.
– Use phone and email to stay in touch to let them know how you’re getting on.
What if I am changing activity or starting a new section, and need to find an Assessor?
An Assessor can be anyone who is interested in helping you to complete your section and achieve your Award, has some knowledge about it (although they don’t need to be an expert!) and is available over the time you’re doing your activity.
They cannot be a family member (to maintain the integrity and value of your Award), but they could be:
– A family friend
– Your DofE Leader
– Another DofE volunteer or helper who helps with your group (your DofE Leader can help put you in touch)
– A teacher from your school
– Another youth leader, if you belong to a youth club, Scouts, Cadets etc.
