Why should you get involved?

Any DofE Award at any level is an important part of a young person’s CV as it shows their commitment to a range of activities over a period of time.

All DofE Awards are looked on very highly by UCAS, and employers, a recent survey showed that employers regard DofE second only to exam passes.

The Gold Award is the culmination of the range of Awards and is particularly highly regarded because of the time and effort it requires to complete.

It really is worthwhile taking on the challenge and making yourself stand out from the crowd.
