The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (DofE)
with the Navy Training Corps
A Duke of Edinburgh’s Award programme is a real adventure from beginning to end. It doesn’t matter who you are or where you’re from.
You just need to be aged between 14 and 24 and realise there’s more to life than sitting on a sofa watching life pass you by.
Why Do It?
You decide what activities you wish to do under the DoE. Programmes and projects that will get you buzzing, and along the way you’ll pick up experiences, friends and talents that will stay with you for the rest of your life.
“It teaches you a lot about yourself and what you can achieve if you put your mind to it. I support the DofE because I am so grateful to have had the opportunity myself, and I hope other people have the chance too.“
“Employers and universities recognise the value of having people who have a life away from their job – this is where the DofE steps in. It builds confidence, self-esteem and teaches new skills – it’s a great way to collect extra experience to give you the edge!”
Commander Eric Moore, Navy Training Corps, holds a Gold award. He knows first-hand how rewarding the programme is and is helping promote the DofE within the Corps.
Cost of Entry:
- £14.00 for Bronze
- £14.00 for Silver
- £20.00 for Gold
At each of our Units, we will have a trained DofE leader. They will help you to plan your activities and give you and your parents’ advice and guidance. Why not have a chat with them?
There are 4 sections to complete for the DofE
The time spent on a section, depends on the level of award you are doing.
e.g. Bronze you must spend at least 6 months on sections 1-3.
For the Expedition, you do the planning and training and then undertake a 2-day, with an overnight, expedition.
There are many activities you can do in each section, the choice is huge. Within the Navy Training Corps there are activities that easily fit in with what we do, but you choose.
Volunteering – helping a charity or community organisation
Physical – water sports
Skill – Life skills, or Media & communication
Expedition – via a boat or kayak/canoe
So, what is the D of E award?
