The D of E is such an amazing qualification because it shows you have self reliance, maturity and commitment. So basically this means you have to be able to get out there and make things happen yourself if you wanna get the D of E!
This page will give you help with what you can do for the different D of E sections and give you help on what evidence to use to prove you have been doing the activities. Please read all the information on the page before going any further.
For your volunteering, skill and physical rec sections we have done some research and put together some lists of organisations that you may be able to use, there are 3 lists for 3 different areas so download the list for the area that you are in, they are on the left under the 'organisations in your area' title box in yellow.
There are litrally hundreds of activities you can do for the different D of E sections which are in a list on the left called 'list of activities'. Important: If you see an activity you like the sound of on that list you will need to find a place locally where you can go to do the activity, where there will also be an adult that can be your 'assessor' for the activity.
Evidencing your D of E Activities:
Most of you will have an adult that you see every time you do the activity that will be your assessor who will support you through the activity. Once you have done the activity for the minimum number of months thn they will write a report about you in your keeping track booklet.
The assessor cannot be a family member so if you are doing cooking at home for the skill section then you need to complete the evidence sheet and upload it to your E DofE site every week. The evidence sheet can be downloaded on the left.
If you go to the gym or swimming but don't have lessons or a personal training then the 'activity log' can be downloaded on the left.
Finished your sections?
Once you have finished your sections then you have to upload photos of your the assessor reports in your keeping track booklet to your E DofE account. For instructions on how to do this download the 'logging in and evidence' document.
If you have lost your assessor cards you can download more on the left.
Just Starting the D of E?
Your leader will have given you an enrolement form and a parental information pack, if you have lost them then you can download more on the left.
