Volunteering requirements for DofE through Scouting in Hertfordshire Scouts

When Volunteering as Young Leaders doing their DofE, Module A is the compulsory one. The requirement is then for an extra 2 hours of ‘other training appropriate to the role’ for each level of the DofE Award. So a total of 2 hours at Bronze, 4 hours at Silver and 6 hours at Gold. This can be formal YL modules, but does not have to be.

Whatever the training, it needs to be listed and signed off somewhere in the evidence. This can be as part of the Assessor report.             .
