CCF  - Duke of Edinburgh's Award

If you enjoy being a cadet, then the DofE gives you even more to enjoy, and increases the challenge and reward. The payback is even more fun, and an internationally renowned Award, recognised and highly respected by potential employers, colleges and universities.

As a member of the Cadet Forces, you can use your Cadet activity towards achieving a Duke of Edinburgh’s Award. There is a lot of overlap between DofE programmes and the activities you might take part in as an Army or Air Cadet. There is information below that outlines how your involvement in Cadets can work even more to your advantage.

Many cadet-related activities which you take part in can count towards your DofE sections at Bronze, Silver and Gold. Your Army or Air Proficiency Certificate (APC) can also overlap with your DofE sections, and with a little extra effort can count fully towards your DofE.
