Films to help you welcome young people

We want young people and their families to feel inspired and excited by the DofE from the very first moment they hear our name.

To help, we have some brilliant films and presentation templates you can use to welcome young people and their parents and carers and bring the DofE to life.

Films to recruit and welcome

The films feature fantastic participants and parents telling their DofE stories in their own words.

We made the films before the COVID-19 pandemic – so the situations and behaviour they show don’t reflect social distancing guidelines..

But they capture the spirit and challenge of the DofE, and show how young people can tailor their programmes to suit them.

There are three types of films for each Award level:

– Start your DofE: Show them in assemblies or other meetings to get young people excited about signing up for their DofE. They’re also great for social media.

– Choose your activities: Ideal for recruitment, but also perfect for meetings or assemblies where you’re welcoming new starters or motivating current participants to choose their activities or progress to the next level.

– What will your child get out of the DofE?: These films give a parent’s perspective on the DofE — so they’re great for showing to parents or carers of potential participants, or sharing with the family of participants who are considering progressing to the next level.

During social distancing, the films are perfect for showing as part of a virtual meeting or recruitment event, on their own or as part of our template presentations. You can also share them on social media, online or by email.

You can stream the films from this page or our YouTube channel, or download them to your laptop or PC using the links below. You can also download recruitment presentation templates below. Just right-click on the links to save files to your computer.
