The DofE – shaping your future

Did you know that the skills young people gain while doing their DofE will help them get a job?

About LifeZone

The LifeZone is an exclusive and free site for DofE Award holders and participants designed to help them describe the skills they develop through their DofE on their CVs and applications and learn how to talk about them at interviews. Whether it’s the leadership, teamworking or initiative demonstrated as part of their expedition or the commitment, communication or positivity showcased through their volunteering and other activities, these are all skills that employers are looking for.

The LifeZone also gives young people access to some top companies that actively believe in the DofE and look for Award holders when they recruit.

And if you haven’t started your DofE programme yet, then the LifeZone is yet another reason why you should.

We’ve kept the site exclusively for our existing participants and recent achievers who have an eDofE account, but you can check out some of the great companies you’ll find inside, below. Hear from them about exactly what achieving your DofE could mean for your future career.
