Our Voices

Kent East Kuttings = Susie.jpg

Hi everyone,
My name is Susie and I am the new County Duke of Edinburgh Advisor. 

I am currently studying at the University of Kent and aim to become a Primary school teacher. 

Having completed my Bronze, Silver, Gold and Diamond DofEs I was selected by DofE South East to take part in a leader training scheme. Having completed that and benefited hugely from the DofE awards I would love to be able to share my knowledge and experiences with future Guide and DofE groups while helping them plan and carry out their own unique and rewarding adventures. Throughout the sections within the DofE, which are: physical, skill, volunteering and expedition; the girls learn about the world and themselves as well as developing life skills and making amazing friends.

The groups will learn many new skills, from putting up a tent in the pouring rain, trekking all day with heavy bags, keeping spirits up, cooking for six on a gas trangia and basic first aid.  As well as this, they will develop leadership, teamwork, communication and outdoor survival skills which are so important for confidence, resilience and of course, universities and employers.  

If you think your Guides (aged 14 or over) would be interested, please contact me on kenteastdofe@gmail.com
