Our online course is ideal for those who are taking part in the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme. Our course can be used for your skill section and we are able to write a report based on your achievement and submit it directly to the DofE portal.

3 MONTH SKILL
Our course contains 10 sections, each designed to be studied over a 2hr period. This content works really well as a 3 month period. We would suggest completing no more than 1hr – 1.5hrs each week.
6 MONTH SKILL
Our course is not suitable for a 6 month skill section. We would be happy to write a report outlining what you have achieved on the course but this would need to be part of further activities, such as teaching fingerspelling to local youth groups or visiting your local Deaf club and using your BSL skills in that way. These additional activities are not something that we can organise however if you keep a detailed log and provide contact details of someone who can verify your participation then we are able to include these details within your assessment report.
