Hampshire Apprentice DofE

Hampshire Apprentice DofE is a way for 16 to 24 year olds to complete their DofE Gold Award programme independently, without belonging to a DofE group.

You will be supported by phone and email by a DofE Adviser. Upload evidence of your programme to the online eDofE system.

Speak to your line manager

Speak to your line manager for approval of this CPD opportunity and confirmation of funding support. When you get permission via email from your line manager please forward the email to dofe@hants.gov.uk and we’ll be in touch to help you get set up and answer any questions.

Find your local DofE adviser

Contact your local DofE Adviser to discuss what you have in mind for your sections.

Start your award

Begin your sections and upload evidence and Assessors’ reports. Your sections are your responsibility to organise. Be sure that your DofE Adviser has approved your sections.

Submit your award

Once you have completed all your sections, your DofE Adviser will pass your account and submissions to an independent verifier. The verifier will approve your award if your evidence is sufficient.

Attend a presentation at St James' Palace

You will receive your congratulations letter and badge in the post and will be invited to a Gold Award Presentation to receive your certificate. At this amazing event, usually held at St James' Palace, you will meet HRH The Earl of Wessex plus high profile guest speakers.
