Who is eligible for a certificate?
2020 DofE Certificates of Achievement will be granted to Bronze, Silver and Gold participants who started in summer 2019 or later, have completed their Physical, Skills and Volunteering sections (but not their Expedition section) and have had them approved by their Leader in eDofE by the end of the year.
When will certificates be available?
We are establishing a date when these certificates will be available, and will update this page as soon as we have these details. This will be no later than July 2020.
Can participants who receive this certificate still go on to achieve their DofE Award?
Yes. The expedition is a hugely valuable experience that develops vital skills and character, and we hope that most participants will still have the opportunity to achieve their DofE Award when it is safe to do so.
All young people who complete their Skills, Physical and Volunteering sections will receive the 2020 DofE Certificate of Achievement and, if they go on to complete their Expedition section at a later date, they will also achieve their DofE Award.
We will update these FAQs as we finalise details, so please check back regularly.
