The Duke of
DFS has been generously supporting the DofE for over 20 years as a Gold Partner and has contributed an amazing ￡1.8 million in that time. DFS has more than 100 furniture stores in the UK, Republic of Ireland, Netherlands and Spain. In 2014, they launched their award winning Service Managers Apprenticeship, and as part of this their young apprentices all work towards achieving their Duke of Edinburgh’s Gold Award. This has been such a success, the Award is now also integrated in their new Factory and Retail apprenticeships, ensuring their young team members are learning the skills required to give the best possible customer service. DFS supports us in many different ways, and increased their support to become a Diamond Partner in 2016, so even more young people can start their DofE across the UK.
