The Award consists of four sections (five at Gold):

  • Volunteering
  • Skills
  • Physical Recreation
  • Expedition
  • Residential (Gold only)

The participants must demonstrate commitment to the sections by logging their involvement on a weekly basis for a sustained period of time.

The expedition section can be completed with any DofE Approved Activity Provider.  Activ provides expedition training at Nonsuch if you opt to sign up with them for the expedition.  All questions regarding the expeditions with Activ should be directed to Activ Adventures who are solely responsible for the expeditions.  Nonsuch staff are not normally in attendance at the expeditions, which can be held close to home at Bronze level (Surrey Hills) or further away for Gold. 

The enrolment cost includes the Duke of Edinburgh Award Registration fee.  The expedition fees shown are the costs if the expedition is completed with Active.  The expedition costs include all the training, supervision, campsite fees and assessment as well as the provision of tents and stoves.  Travel costs are not included.  Suitable rucksacks can be hired at competitive rates.  The Gold expeditions are generally held in locations such as the Brecon Beacons and Snowdonia.
