Congratulations on getting to your DofE Silver Award.
We would be delighted to welcome you to the Awesome Exporting skill! If you would like to join us, we are here (along with Hew) to guide you through the next 6 months, giving you a better insight into the fascinating world of exporting.
As this is the gold skill, the course is split into 24 weeks. You will be asked to think of two products or services and two countries to export these products to. The countries must be from different continents.
The first 12 weeks will focus on your first product/service and country, followed by the second 12 weeks which concentrates on your second product/service and country.
Each week there will be an area of export that we ask you to research and then write about. Be as expansive in your answers as you can, and back up your writing with facts, figures, statistics, evidence of visits or correspondence that you’ve had with other people.
At each 4 weekly point we ask you to submit your work so that we can review it. This ensures that you’re going along the right lines.
We can be contacted during work hours via the website online chat or email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
There is no right or wrong answer to the course, and we can’t wait to see your work!

“I did enjoy the research element. This has helped me improve my researching skills and picking out key parts of information. I have also learned about the two countries Spain and Australia in more detail.”
