Run the DofE in a business
DofE Business was developed in 2007 to bring the benefits of achieving a DofE Award from school right through to the workplace. The DofE is an integral part of young talent development in leading businesses like Amey, British Gas, DFS and Heathrow. These businesses know the DofE is the proven kitemark of achievement that develops the soft skills young people need for life and work.
There are tangible business benefits to your young employees achieving their Award including uncovering talent, building your future leaders, improving retention, supporting diversity and focusing on great customer service.
Most of our businesses offer Gold DofE Award programmes to complement the technical training they offer, and have been thrilled with the results. We work closely with businesses to integrate the DofE alongside early careers training programmes, ensuring it reflects the business strategy and drives measurable improvements in performance.
In return for a donation to our charity, we support businesses to deliver the DofE to their young people (14-24 years old), and help them develop the skills essential to create the leaders of tomorrow like communication, teamwork and resilience.
