For advice and FAQs directly from the official DofE website see Do DofE, but read the FAQ Page and you'll hopefully find most of your questions answered. If you haven't already signed up, follow these 5 steps to join our Society and start completing your Gold Award.
Also, we have a Mentor Scheme where people in the society offer advice about completing eDofE Sections, check your progress and motivate you to keep proactive at uploading evidence to help when it comes to approving Sections when you finish them. Your mentor can help you with specific questions, and you are also free to ask the exec any further queries. If you would like to be assigned a mentor, Contact Us online or in person - it's very easy to sign up!
