The New eDofE app
You can download the new DofE app (https://www.dofe.org/app/) to manage your eDofE, it is free from the App Store and Google Play. The DofE App allows students to easily upload evidence (photos and assessors reports) to their eDofE account which makes it easier for pupils to complete each section. This must be managed by the student and parents and is a commitment to ensure evidence of the four sections is recorded in a timely manner.
