DofE story 

International exchange in Bulgaria

Erasmus+ Bulharsko

Before the end of the school year, the first international exchange of leaders within the Erasmus+ project Non-formal Learning in the Formal Education took place in Bulgaria. Czech coordinators from three local centres had the opportunity to meet their colleagues from Bulgaria, Lithuania and the Netherlands. You can read the impressions of the participants here:


In the national office we are currently preparing Research into the benefits of the DofE programme. All young people who complete the programme by the end of the year will receive a link to the questionnaire. We would be delighted if you would ask your participants to complete it. This is because with your help we can get very valuable data that will help us to continually improve the programme so that young people enjoy it, want to be involved, complete it successfully and can use it in their future lives.
