Encouraging achievers to progress to Gold programmes

Consider holding your Silver presentation event at the start of the year and use it as an opportunity to recruit the achievers to start their Gold programmes. They’ll be feeling a great sense of achievement and reflecting on their accomplishments. Invite their parents along and dedicate time at the end to get their support.

Promoting DofE programmes to pupils

Promoting DofE programmes to pupils at the start of the year is essential; engage whole year groups and ensure all have the opportunity to participate. Recruit through assemblies, flyers and posters and use current participants or recent Award holders to act as ambassadors. They could give talks, run Q&A sessions or create films or photo displays sharing their DofE experiences. You may find this video helpful for use in assemblies.

Getting the DofE noticed in your school

Create a prominent DofE noticeboard within your school. You can use it to publicise DofE achievements to non-participants and teachers to raise awareness and encourage involvement. Building a positive image of the DofE in your school will ensure your activities are supported. You can also use the board to advertise DofE meetings, sign up sheets and give updates on progress.
