HI All,

Please find information on DofE’s new ‘Approved Activity Provider’ Scheme.

The following is an excerpt from DofE’s website


‘The DofE licences external organisations that provide opportuntities which have been proven to meet our conditions and can count towards the achievement of an Award. We call these partners Approved Activity Providers (AAPs).

They can be commercial organisations or charities and are usually able to provide a section in its entirety, including accredited assessment and the signing of Record Books. As a DofE Leader, you can confidently recommend AAPs to your participants.

The AAP licence is a quality standard on an organisation's programme meeting the programme and sectional requirements of the DofE.

Please note that the AAP licence does not guarantee the suitability of an AAP in terms of health and safety or its financial stability. Operating Authorities will have their own process for checking the suitability of AAP programmes in terms of health and safety requirements for their young people and they have the final say on the appropriateness of a course in this respect.’

For more information please consult the DofE website or contact the Northern Ireland Regional Office
