New Enrolment Form
In light of the requirements of GDPR, and taking into consideration the information requested in eDofE, we have refreshed the sample DofE Participant Enrolment Form.

MTF Training courses – Autumn 2018
South West adult training courses for the Autumn term are now open for bookings. We have a range of courses across the South West region including Introduction to the DofE, Expedition Supervisor Training Course and Expeditions Assessor Accreditation Scheme courses. Following the successful trial of the DofE Expedition Skills (DES) Course in October, we hope to be running more DES courses in the New Year. MTF courses are now booked online via the website.
We currently have over 1,400 Awards awaiting approval on eDofE in the South West, so please do encourage your Award Verifiers to login and verify any Awards waiting from over the summer holidays.
We also have over 500 Assessor reports waiting for approval so do login and check your alerts on eDofE as lots of reports have come in over the summer.

Over the summer we have had a few staff changes to the South West team. Oliver Rice has relocated to our London office having been promoted to the role of Operations Manager; we are currently recruiting for his replacement – for an Operations Officer for Gloucestershire (Vacancy advertised here). Rhyanna Bunniss has just joined us as Operations Officer for Wiltshire and will be taking over from Chris Jamieson who sadly leaves us at the end of November.
A staff chart is below which shows the new team.

In compliance with GDPR we have updated our Blue and Green forms to reflect the new requirements regarding the use of personal data.
