eDofE - Ratcliffe College


When participants register for a Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, they receive a unique login to the national database, enabling them to record their choices and track their progress. Additionally, they receive a pack containing blank report proformas and other essential information.

Year 9 participants will have the opportunity to join a small group during one form time to learn how to use the system and discuss ideas for their DofE programme.

For those needing support in progressing their award, whether it’s using eDofE, seeking advice, or brainstorming ideas, assistance is readily available. Students can drop into Maths or CCF during breaks or lunchtimes, where Mrs Cole or Mr Walters will be available to help them.

Once participants have initiated their Duke of Edinburgh’s Award journey, they are encouraged to drop in whenever they have questions or require assistance or ideas. Support is readily available to ensure participants have the guidance and resources they need to progress successfully through their DofE programme.

The process for working through a section on eDofE is:

  • Complete the programme planner information (draft form)
  • Submit the programme planner and have it approved (in progress)
  • Upload an assessor report and submit the section – this section will then be recorded as completed

Once participants have completed all sections of their Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, they can submit their award electronically for final approval. (At Gold level final approval is also required from Central England DofE). This involves requesting approval from the official independent verifier. At the Gold level, final approval is also required from Central England DofE.

The assessor report can be completed either as a paper report using the proforma provided in the participant pack or online through the assessor portal if the assessor knows the participant’s eDofE number. This ensures a streamlined process for submitting and approving the award, facilitating efficient progression through the DofE programme.
