Spread the news in your local community

Invite local press to the celebration event (or send them a press release and photos afterwards) to help raise awareness in the local community of your work and create a positive image of the school and its pupils. Invite notable figures in the community along or an inspirational speaker (consider local councillors, celebrities, sports people or business figures) to help give the event a sense of importance. This might pave the way for their future support with your DofE activities.

Hold a presentation evening to recognise DofE achievements

Hold a special presentation evening to hand out certificates and badges. Ask some Award holders (or current participants) to demonstrate the skills they’ve learnt through their programmes, e.g. a musical skill, cookery or art. Use it as a publicity event for next year’s potential participants – invite them along with their parents to see what it’s all about.
