Coordinate DofE dates with your school's calendarBy The DofE
Update the admin team with any confirmed dates for DofE information evenings and assemblies, celebration events, training courses, expedition dates and training (for practice and qualifying) so that they can be incorporated into the whole school calendar for teachers and students. Avoid any clashes, where possible, with other events
Carry out some housekeeping on your eDofE accountBy The DofE
Spend some time tidying up your eDofE account – don’t forget to archive those participants who are no longer doing their programmes or who have completed but are not progressing on to the next level. This will ensure your list to chase is kept as small as possible.
Book IT sessions for eDofE trainingBy The DofE
Book out time in the IT rooms throughout the next academic year for eDofE training, setting up your participants and volunteers and catch up/drop-in sessions for participants to support them with uploading their evidence, and submitting their Programme Planners, Assessor’s Reports and expedition presentations.
