DofE Enrolment Form link now in the Forms list

DofE enrolment: An .doc enrolment form or PDF (link to form with some pre-filled info for Sqn) must be completed on first enrolment to eDofE.

1368 Sqn is passionate about the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme. The DofE is open to young people and has 3 levels - Bronze, Silver and Gold.  Participants complete activities at each level over set periods in each of 4 sections - Volunteering, Expeditions, Skills, Physical; for Gold only, a Residential is added as a fifth section.

For the Participant:

  • The DofE is understood by those outside of the ATC.
  • There is a greater expectation of involvement by the cadet in the planning stage of their DofE experience than in standard cadet syllabus, thus accelerating the process of personal development.
  • The ATC syllabus offers an almost ‘off-the-shelf’ programme to gain an Award and there are ample opportunities for cadets and young volunteer staff to gain Awards by their work within the Corps.
  • DofE generates success in areas of particular interest to the cadet or volunteer at a higher level than that at which they are currently working.
  • Activity outside of the ATC can be counted towards an Award, thus encouraging the participant to become even more involved in the local community.
  • Participants can be eligible to take part in gatherings and activities organised by the DofE and the International Award for Young People.

 Cadets may enter the Award in the school year in which they become 14, and at Silver in the school year in which they become 15. At Gold level no activities count before the 16th birthday. You can overlap levels, e.g., if you have finished the section at Bronze, you can start the section at Silver.

Cost to Wing, currently, is £21 for Bronze and £28 for Gold. Ideally we need a cheque made payable to 'Warwickshire and Birmingham Wing ATC' but if you don't have cheques then we will find another way. In recognition of the value, the Air Cadets refund the cost, if the participant completes the Award.
