Programme resources

The links below include a selection of resources that Leaders and participants with additional needs have found useful.  These resources are for the Volunteering, Physical and Skills sections.  For Expedition section resources, please click here.

Where possible, support the young person to choose an activity which they would like to do and that you feel is achieveable.  

If you have used any resources which you feel may benefit other participants and Leaders, please send them in to us at  [email protected].


Tip:  Use sectional certificates to reward each section the young person has completed.  Celebrating achievements can encourage participants to stay motivated and enthusiastic.

eDofE Leader recorded

All new DofE participants use eDofE to record their DofE programme.

The DofE has developed functionality to allow specific Leaders (or other adults in the participant’s hierarchy) to act in eDofE on behalf of participants who are unable to engage fully in the system because they have additional needs, or are prevented from using technology for cultural/religious reasons.

More detailed information is set out in the Leaders' user guide and if you think you and your participants would benefit from using Leader Recorded chat to your DofE Manager and use this nomination form.
