Everything you need to know for your Duke of Edinburgh's Award this June
Keep your Award going smoothly


A lot of participants get stuck waiting for their Assessors reports, If you completed your section more than a week ago and haven't got a report your Assessor probably hasn't seen it. Here are some things you can do to speed up the process:

1. Make sure you talk to your Assessor to let them know they will receive an email asking for a report
2. You can resend the request link to your Assessor through your Online Record Book account
3. Your assessor can write the report on paper or via email and you can upload a photo or screenshot of the report instead

Goals and Logs:

DofE is about building a challenge for yourself, your goal and logs should reflect this. Make sure both are descriptive so we and your Assessor can see your development. Try and get at least two sentences per log!
