Getting started

You need to download a Virtual Centre Enrolment Form(pdf, 354KB) and send it to the address on the form.

If you already have an eDofE account, the new level of award will be added to your account. If you are new to the DofE, you will have an account created for you, and your username and password will be emailed to you.

A Welcome Pack with information will be sent to you in the post.

What you need to do

Once you have received your Welcome Pack and information from us, you can start your activities.

Read this step by step guide(pdf, 260KB) to the Virtual Centre to find out how to undertake the DofE with the virtual centre.

It is then entirely up to you to complete your sections. As soon as you have completed a section, you get it 'signed off' in your Keeping Track booklet and upload evidence of its completion onto eDofE.

This 10 step guide to eDofE(pdf, 644KB) will help you to complete your sections. When all three sections (Volunteering, Physical, and Skills) are signed off on eDofE and marked as completed, a member of staff from our team will be in touch to arrange the expeditions with you.
