This year we have made some changes to DofE at de Stafford to ensure that we can deliver the award within the guidelines due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Year 9 students can apply to complete their Bronze DofE and will be working to achieve 'The DofE Certificate of Achievement.' For this academic year, young people will receive this formal recognition of their achievements in their Skills, Volunteering and Physical sections.
Many young people are facing unprecedented changes and challenges in these times. DofE can give them something positive to focus on and provide structure and stability, whilst also supporting them to develop life skills, develop confidence and build resilience!
Students in Year 9 will see a virtual assembly this week during SAM time. An application form will be distributed to students via their SAM groups. They will need to apply, telling us about their previous experience and hobbies, how they intend to complete their skill, volunteering and physical section and why they are ready and should be chosen for this challenge. The closing date for applications is Friday 23rd October 2020.
