Doing my DofE was an unforgettable experience! I definitely found it gets more difficult when you’re working towards your Silver and Gold Awards. You’re doing your GCSEs or A Levels so you’ve got lots going on – you need to be really good at planning your time. As well as schoolwork, I juggled teaching Year 6 students how to debate, rowing practice, being a lifeguard and a residential in France. But it was all worth it, DofE has made me a more well-rounded person – it’s even helped me to get a part-time teaching job.
