Awards Awaiting Verifier Approval 

Please remind your Award Verifier to log in and approve any Awards that are awaiting their approval.

Awards at Bronze and Silver level need to be approved by your Award Verifier on eDofE by 31st March 2019 to be counted in this year’s statistical report. The deadline for Gold Awards to be submitted to regional office for approval in this financial year is 28th March.

One section left to complete

We currently have around 3,400 participants with just one section left to complete in order to achieve their Awards in the South West Region. Take a look at the reporting suite to find out how many of these are in your Licensed Organisation.

Click below for a link to download the eDofE reporting suite user guide from the DofE Manager page which will help guide you through doing this (remember to remove archived and deleted participants from your list.)

Group expedition equipment purchases

The Commercial team has a group sales template which is available to download from the DofE Shopping page for bulk orders of expedition kit (link below).

Please use this if ordering expedition kit in bulk as it will ensure you get the best possible deal from our Commercial partners; Go Outdoors, Tiso, Blacks, Millets & Ultimate Outdoors. Make sure you sent it to all the companies as they will compete to give you the best price.

Please send them in to your Operations Officer along with a high resolution logo from your Licensed Organisation. The deadline for submissions is 22nd February 2019.
