    How long will it take me to complete the DoE award? I'm in the first year of sixth form and my school is making it compulsory to do the bronze award. Will it take a long time for me to be able to do the gold award? Plus can someone explain it more in detail , thanks

    For the bronze award you have a section for: volunteering, physical, and skills. You will get a small booklet that you will have to sign off by the person that supervises you in each section and those people will write a couple of sentences on how you do. For example:

    Physical - Tennis - Signed by trainer
    Skills - Chess - Signed by your opponent
    Volunteering - Helping out at the library - Signed by the librarian
    Expedition - 2 days and 1 night (Practice/Real), signed off by your team supervisor

    When you register online, you will get a 3/3/6 month format. That means that you have to spend 3 months on two of your activities and 6 on the other, before you can upload a picture of your section signed off by your supervisor to your account. Your teacher will then approve it. Which activity you spend more time on is up to you.

    The expedition will take place generally in the summer, therefore that is when all your sections are going to be completed. Meaning that the bronze award should take a year altogether.

    After the bronze award you can skip straight to gold. However that is in another country and of a higher intensity. Therefore it makes sense to do silver next and it adds more credit if you have all three, rather than just bronze and gold.

    Hope this helps
