For national training opportunities please visit our Opportunity Finder, or click below for courses offered by the South East Region.

Please note: due to COVID-19 all face-to-face training is suspended until further notice. If you have any questions please email [email protected].

Please ensure when booking a training course, you do so in your own name and not on behalf of another. If you have an eDofE account please log in before applying. Please write which Licensed Organisation you are working with in the notes.

For more detailed information on the content of each course please visit our Training Centre.

If you are applying for one of our funded courses (EAAS or Introduction to DofE) you must have an adult eDofE account. This could be a Helper, Leader, Coordinator, Administrator or Manager level account. If you have not got an account please speak to the DofE Manager at your Licensed Organisation who will be able to create one for you. Once you have logged into it, you can book onto the course.

Failing to cancel at least 48 hours before will incur a charge for the full cost of the course (£25 Introduction to DofE or £30 Expedition Assessor Accreditation Scheme).
