Duke of Edinburgh's Award Silver Programme
Who is eligible?
Anyone aged between 15 and 24.
What is involved?
Because every young person chooses what they want to do, there is no such thing as 'TheDofE programme' – instead there are DofE programmes. When young people are taking part, they are doing a DofE programme - each DofE programme is personal to the individual and there is no such thing as the DofE programme.
A Silver DofE programme has 4 sections:
|Volunteering||see Programme ideas for suggestions|
|Physical||see Programme ideas and Planner for suggestions|
|Skills||see Programme ideas for suggestions|
|Expedition||see 20 conditions for conditions|
- You must do at least 6 months Volunteering
- You must do 6 months on either the Physical or Skills section, and 3 months on the other
(it's up to you which one you do for longer).
- You must plan, train for, and do a 3 day (2 night) Expedition.
If you start your Silver without doing Bronze first you'll have to do an extra 6 months volunteering or doing whichever of the Physical or Skills sections you have spent more time on.
You need to attend monthly training sessions.
When does it start?
Courses start in November and must be completed by September the following year, when you have to give a presentation to the staff.
How long does it take?
It will take you at least 6 months for Silver if you've already achieved your Bronze, or 12 months if you've jumped straight into Silver
How much does it cost?
Please contact your school for costs.
