Update on DofE training for the expedition phase of both the Bronze and Silver Award.
We plan to continue with training and complete the expedition phase for both awards during the months of September and October 2020. Provisional dates for these are already being looked into.
We will be using the SMHW app to keep you updated of home based activities participants can complete, if they wish, in order to gain a good background knowledge of all the skills required during the expedition phase;
Many participants may have had to temporarily pause some of the activities they are completing for the other sections of the Award - Skills, Volunteering and Physical. It is useful to know that an activity can be changed once during the time phase to a more home based activity. Simply change your activity on your eDofE account and then submit to myself (for Bronze) or Mrs Quattrucci (for Silver) for approval. Please have a look at the DofE website for more suggestions on how to keep the Award going remotely or when in isolation. https://www.dofe.org/coronaactivitytips.
