Get parents' permissions for photographs

By The DofE

Don’t forget to get the parents’ permissions to take photographs of their sons or daughters whilst doing their DofE activities. These photos are great to use for publicity on your website and in your promotional materials. Permission can easily be gathered through a simple tick box on the enrolment form or a separate model release form.

Using social media to raise awareness of your DofE activities

By The DofE

Consider setting up Facebook, Twitter or Instagram accounts to raise awareness of your DofE activities. You could use this to publicise your information events, presentations and training courses and to share photos of participants and their activities to shine a light on their positive work. Check out our ‘Get social!’ guide on the Resource Zone for more help with using social media. If social media access is restricted by your school IT system, you could consider setting up an online noticeboard on the school’s website to house this information.
