In this term’s update:

  • Enrolments
  • New enrolment form
  • MTF Training Courses
  • Award Achievements
  • SW Managers Facebook page
  • DofE South West staff team
  • Green & Blue Expedition forms

 It’s the start of term so a quick reminder that you need to create participants on eDofE before 3rd November in order to roll back the start date to the start of term (there is a limit of 8 weeks to roll back the start date).

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.

It is available to download here: Sample enrolment form (participants)

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.

Award Achievements

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.


SW Managers Facebook Page
Check out the SW DofE Managers page on Facebook which a number of Managers are already using. Please do use this to share resources, tips and handy hints with other local Managers. https://bit.ly/2ECvkNy

Staff Changes
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, Charles Woolhouse has joined the team as Operations Officer for Gloucestershire. Rhyanna Bunniss has joined us as Operations Officer for Wiltshire and will be taking over from Chris Jamieson who sadly left the DofE at the end of November.

A staff chart is below which shows the new team.
