Duke Of Edinburghs Silver Award


  • The next step up from Bronze... you need to be at least 15 to start doing your Silver DofE programme.  If you've achieved your Bronze Award, your Leader may allow you to start your Silver a month or two before your 15th birthday.
  • A Silver DofE programme has 4 sections, Volunteering, Physical, Skills and Expedition.  You need to do at least 6 months Volunteering and a minimum of 6 months on either Physical or Skills and 3 months on the other . It’s up to you which one you do for longer.
  • The Expedition section involves planning, training for and doing a 3 day (2 night) expedition.
  • If you start your Silver without doing Bronze first you’ll have to do an extra 6 months volunteering or doing whichever of the Physical or Skills sections you have spent more time on.  Though you can change your mind later, you should decide which section you want to do for longer at the beginning.  Knowing how long you’re going to do it for will help you to choose your activity and set your goals for each section.
  • It will take you at least 6 months for Silver if you've already achieved your Bronze, or 12 months if you've jumped straight into Silver.
