Ask governors and the PTA to give their personal thanks

Invite governors along to the celebration event to give it a sense of occasion and importance. Ask them to contribute their personal congratulations to the young people and offer their thanks to your volunteers, perhaps even by saying a few words.

Ask the headteacher and SMT to show their appreciation

Invite your headteacher and the senior management team to your DofE celebration event and ask them to contribute their personal thanks to the young achievers and your volunteers (this could be done face to face or as a letter or even with the gesture of a free item of clothing or expedition equipment). Not only will this help your young people and volunteers to feel valued and have their achievement recognised it will also help your headteacher and SMT to understand the time commitment, resources and challenges involved with delivering DofE programmes. Building a positive image of the DofE and its impact in the school will ensure it maintains a good reputation and that your provision is supported for years to come.

Work with form tutors to chase completions

Work with form tutors to use form time to chase those participants who are close to completion. Share with tutors the solutions to overcoming the most common barriers to completion and the answers to regularly asked questions so that they can act as additional support.
