    DofE Diamond Challenge

    Wayne,

    You are probably aware of the DofE Diamond Challenge. There are a number of us who have just about missed the deadline of age 25 to complete a standard bronze/silver/gold DofE and will therefore never get the chance to wear a DofE badge on our uniform. I wonder therefore if TSA would consider producing a cloth badge for post-25 adults who complete the DofE Diamond Challenge to wear on their uniform (in the standard DofE position). Perhaps this could then be available in future years on a similar scheme run by TSA.

    Many thanks for your time as UKCC!

    Many thanks Kevin, much appreciated.

    Yes, aware of the Diamond Challange, along with my team we are undertaking ours in June - more of that another day!

    As I've mentioned before however, I'm not a supporter of programme or activity badges for adults I'm afraid, so wouldn't support a badge.

    Wayne,

    Thanks for the reply but I hope we can agree to disagree on this one. I think it is important for young people to see that the adults do training and make progress too. I believe that learning is a life-long thing, not something you cram in until you are 21. I wouldn't allow young peoples' achievement badges to be overwhelmed by corporate logos if I could, but we are all different.
