Promote the LifeZone to parents

By The DofE

Send a light progress report or letter to parents – highlighting any participants who are close to completion and needing to submit evidence. Encourage parents to support their children in completing these elements. Tell parents to visit the LifeZone with their son or daughter to discover the benefits of achieving an Award and how it can support their child’s future.

Advertise achievements on DofE noticeboard

By The DofE

Publicise any Awards achieved so far this year on the DofE noticeboard (ask Award holders to write about their experience and display this too) – it will raise awareness of your work and generate interest, as well as encouraging others to complete.
