Ask form tutors to encourage completions

By The DofE

Highlight to form tutors and heads of year those students who still need to submit evidence. Ask tutors to chase as well as adding reminders in pigeon holes, emails and on notice boards or form time notices. Consider sharing a list of the last time their students logged in to eDofE as an additional prompt.

Recruit volunteers

By The DofE

The start of term is a great time to recruit for more volunteers – people will be spurred on by their New Year’s resolutions. Use your regular staff engagement channels (e.g. notice boards in the staffroom, pigeon holes, email requests, etc.) and invite them along to DofE meetings so they can see what it’s all about.
