GANF gets DofE approval! 


GANF were visited last month by Lincolnshire County Council’s Duke of Edinburgh's Award Manager, Jacky Secker and Duke of Edinburgh's Award Verifier, Barry Sinclair. This was a training visit to support our schools and to view the facilities that we offer pupils for their Duke of Edinburgh's Award programme.

GANF staff, Joe Bogumsky and Anita Asken, spoke with Jacky and Barry.

Barry said: “I was very pleased with how Joe and Anita are developing their programme of activities, considering they are both new to DofE. The opportunities offered to their pupils are wide ranging, from the kayaking and climbing, through to the immense facilities available at their Forest School. I was particularly impressed with the pupil’s knowledge, and the skills they have developed as part of their DofE Bronze Award.”

Once registered, as part of GANF’s Enrichment Programme, all pupils are able to access the DofE Award and go on to complete their Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards.

Barry Sinclair added, “DofE opportunities should be available to everyone, it is what DofE is all about and we are so pleased that GANF offer all its pupils the chance to access the Duke of Edinburgh's Award”.
