The questions people ask most - FAQs

  • Are all the U:Bee Courses suitable for the Skills Section of my DofE Programme?

    Yes! U:Bee Online is an Approved Activity Provider for the Skills Section of your DofE programme. This means U:Bee Online Courses meet the requirements of that section. All our courses meet the requirements of the Bronze and Silver Sections. Email us to get more information if you are doing your Gold DofE. As with all stages of your DofE, we advise that you should always check with your Leader, Licensed Organisation or Teacher and get their approval

  • How Long Does My Course Last?

    The course content is delivered to your U:Bee Learners Dashboard over THREE OR SIX MONTHS, depending on the course length you have signed up for. It is always delivered one week at a time, to adhere to the weekly commitment you must make to achieve the Skills Section of your DofE.

  • Is the cost all inclusive? Do I have to spend more money to complete the course?

    No, you don't need to spend anything else to complete the courses. The course will give you lots of ideas about things to do or research but it doesn't mean you have to spend more money. The exception to this is any of the cooking courses. You will have to purchase ingredients to make the recipes but they are written to make sure you can include the dishes as part of your family meals!

  • What proof do I have that I have successfully completed my course?

    When you begin your course, you will be provided with the information you need to update your e-DofE. Once you have completed the content every week, along with the knowledge check quizzes, you will receive a U:Bee Completion Certificate. We can verify these with your Group or Leader. You will also receive a personalised Assessor's Report which you can upload to your e-DofE. We will also manually sign off your e-DofE Assessor's page..

  • Do I need permission to sign up for the course?

    If you are under 16, a nominated parent or guardian must give permission for you to use U:Bee. This is in our terms and conditions.
