The Duke of Edinburgh's Award

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (DofE) is the UK’s leading non-academic achievement award for young people. It gives them the opportunity to learn new skills, develop a sense of social responsibility and get active.

DofE helps young people to develop qualities and values that many employers look for – self-discipline, motivation, commitment, determination and many more.

Participants work through 4 sections: skills, volunteering, physical and expedition.

 

Why choose BXM for DofE

BXM Expeditions is able to offer expeditions for all three levels of the award.

At Bronze level, participants will complete an element of training before completing a remotely supervised qualifying expedition. During Silver and Gold levels participants take part in training and a practice expedition before completing a qualifying expedition.

We work hard to ensure that our DofE expeditions are bespoke to every school. We work closely with our DofE managers to provide a cost-effective and sustainable programme for every young person.

 

For schools

We hold an AALA licence and an impeccable safety record. We make conscious decisions to keep our costs to a minimum, so we can provide the best value experience to schools.

For London city schools we are offering Urban DofE at a much lower cost on a different type of package, please take a look at our page for more information.
