A major cause of queried Awards is participants doing activities that are not admissible, meaning that they cannot complete their programme and achieve their Award. By reviewing draft sections early you can check the participant is doing an activity that meets the aims and requirements for each section.
If you are unsure about a certain activity - whether it's OK to do or simply which section it belongs in - contact your LO or Regional Office who will advise you. The Handbook for DofE Leaders also provides guidance.
You can view sections that have been in draft for more than 30 days. To do this:
1. Go to Manage Participants > Participant overview > search for participants using the location search box and tick the 'Highlight draft sections' filter
