DofE Open Evening


Duke of Edinburghs Award Open Evening 26 November 2015 : 6.00pm - 7.30pm in the Maths Block.

UCC will be holding an Open Evening for all those who have already enrolled on to the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.  This is to provide information to both parents and students and hopefully enable those attending to understand the Award fully and how they can complete each section to achieve their Award.

Included in the open evening:

  • A chance to meet a representative from the Duke of Edinburgh's Award Regional Office.
  • Expedition information on the 2016, Bronze, Silver and Gold expeditions, the proposed locations and dates for these, and what will be required for the different levels.
  • Information on the First Aid Courses we offer for the Skills Section and what counts as a skill.
  • Mr R Lewin will show what opportunities UCC offer during Enrichment to enhance sectional success and how to access these.
  • Laptops available for students to log on to the DofE site to see how their progress is tracked.
  • A raffle will be drawn on the night, all monies raised will be used for the 2016 expeditions to help keep the costs down.

Please let me know if you can join us on the evening by EMailing: or Telephone:  01572 823631.

We look forward to seeing you on the night.

Yours sincerely,

Debra Thomas
UCC Duke of Edinburgh Manager
