“The DofE is a great way to showcase your talents and stand out from the crowd. The Award is for everyone from all walks of life, no matter what your circumstances are.

Presenter- Holly Walsh, Comedian

“Massive congratulations on getting your Gold Awards. It’s a huge achievement and one worth celebrating. Doing my DofE taught me how to apply myself. I learnt how to push myself in a very practical way. It shows there’s more to life than academic success and I’m sure that’s a big reason employers and universities value the DofE as it demonstrates you’re going to turn up and muck in. If you have a passion, keep at it, keep plugging away because that’s what I did and I’m so glad I put in the groundwork.”
