Covid-19 information for Duke of Edinburgh candidates

‘Due to the current situation it is becoming increasingly apparent that the Duke of Edinburgh expeditions (Bronze and Silver) will NOT go ahead as planned this Summer term.  Despite this, we are determined to ensure that our students can continue working towards their Award and be recognised for their hard work and commitment.  The DofE have created a ‘2020 Certificate of Achievement’ for this year only and requires students to complete their skills, volunteering and physical sections only.  To achieve a DofE Certificate of Achievement in these situations will demonstrate the resilience of students and will be a welcome addition to any personal statement/CV that they may need in the future.  Please refer to the DofE section on the Covid-19 page on school website (https://hansonschool.org.uk/coronavirus-information/) for ideas on how to complete these sections whilst in lockdown and remember to keep uploading evidence on the eDofE accounts’
