Leaders may be are aware the eDofE system had some updates during November and the DofE are currently working on a restyle which should hopefully help with the look, feel and functionality of the system.
New developments include a redesign, addition of a new expedition mapping programme, reporting functions and improvements to the alerts and resources.
In addition to this, the Welcome packs are being revamped to make them more user friendly (especially when being posted). They will soon be a see-through plastic wallet containing all of the relevant information (which is also being updated). From 1 April 2011, the cost of Welcome Packs will increase.
Donít forget that from 1 April 2011, all qualifying expeditions now need to be assessed by an appropriate DofE Accredited Expedition Assessor.Author: Gary Bainbridge
