The Duke of Edinburgh's Bronze and Silver Award are approved locally by County DofE Advisers.
Gold Awards are signed off by the National DofE SASU, National Operating Authority (NOA) team at DofE, not by volunteers locally.
If you are an assessor for an individual's award, you won't be able to approve the award too. The SASU and the NOA team at DofE will be able to approve the award for you.
You can get in touch with the NOA team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you need more help with achieving your award or delivering the scheme locally, your County DofE Adviser or your district team can help.
