Silver Award
  • The Silver DofE programme is open to Year 10 and you do not need to have undertaken your Bronze Award to participate.

  • A Silver DofE programme has 4 sections: Volunteering, Physical, Skills and Expedition. 

  • The Expedition section involves planning, training for and completing a 3 day (2 night) expedition.

  • If you start your Silver without completing your Bronze you will have to do an extra 6 months in one of the sections (see the information pack for more details).  Knowing how long you’re going to do it for will help you to choose your activity and set your goals for each section.

  • It usually takes 6-18 months to complete your silver depending on your organisation.

Assessors report will only be accepted when they are either written on your assessors card in your pack (can be downloaded from link below) or via the online form on the dofe website Assessor’s Report - The Duke of Edinburgh's Award (
