Essential ID

It is essential that anybody attending a Gold Award Presentation in Scotland brings along two forms of identification with them on the day of the presentation, one of which must be photographic. If you are attending a presentation and do not possess two forms of identification, you must phone 0131 343 0920 before the event to let us know.

Gold Awards Round-up

A hearty congratulations goes out to all the Gold Award recipients who came to collect their certificates at the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh on the 5th and 6th of July. Over a thousand young people received their Gold Awards over the four presentations.

You can order photos taken on the day from the Tempest Photography website. You will need your GAP ID number and eDofE number to login. Both these numbers can be found on your coloured tickets from the presentation. If you cannot locate your numbers, then contact us at [email protected]. A selection of photos from the day can be found in our Facebook albums for the 5 July and 6 July.

The presentations would not be possible without the volunteers who donate their time to the event. DofE Scotland would like to thank everyone who volunteered at the presentations.

Our thanks also goes to Purves Marquees who kindly donated the use of their marquees.
