We are an approved DofE provider

OBA

Did you know that you can use credits from rehearsals with Only Boys Aloud for your Duke of Edinburgh Award? We are an Approved Activity Provider for the Skills section.

What is the DofE Award?

“A life-changing experience. A fun time with friends. An opportunity to discover new interests and talents. A tool to develop essential skills for life and work. A recognised mark of achievement; respected by employers.

The DofE is many things to many people, supporting generations to successfully navigate adult life.

14-24 year-olds can do a DofE programme at one of three progressive levels which, when successfully completed, leads to a Bronze, Silver or Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.

There are four sections to complete at Bronze and Silver level and five at Gold. They involve helping the community/environment, becoming fitter, developing new skills, planning, training for and completing an expedition and, for Gold only, working with a team on a residential activity.”

For more information about taking part in DofE, visit https://www.dofe.org/

To find out how your participation in Only Boys Aloud can be approved, please get in touch or speak to one of our OBA Project Managers.
