Reporting back on last year's successes

Produce a report on the previous year’s DofE successes (e.g. number of Awards achieved, number of young people progressing onto the next level, improved attainment and attendance statistics of participants and the destinations of school leavers who also achieved their Awards). Anecdotal quotes and feedback could also be included. This will help to demonstrate the positive impact of DofE activities on the whole school and encourage continued support for your work.

Showcase your DofE activities on the school website

Create a DofE area on the school website, showcasing your DofE activities. This is also a great place to add information and links for parents and those interested in starting their DofE. Potential new pupils might look to see if a school offers DofE programmes when they are selecting their school or college.

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.

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.
