British Gas

British Gas have been a proud supporter of the DofE since 2007 and offer its young apprentices the opportunity to do their Gold DofE programme.

British Gas aims to attract the best and brightest, and to retain them by providing a positive working environment. In addition to its contact centre colleagues, British Gas directly employs more than 7,000 engineers who carry out our servicing and breakdown services for over 3.4 million customers.

Since its partnership started with the DofE, an amazing 2,000 young people from across the business have completed their DofE programmes.

“It was such a privilege to collect my Gold DofE Award at St James’s Palace and be part of something so special. Achieving my Gold DofE was extremely challenging, but I’ve become more confident as a person, excelled in my role and it’s opened up doors within British Gas already. I’d recommend doing the DofE to all young people.”
