The transition to ORB from DofE apps?
Everyone who has already used the DofE mobile app will receive an email with instructions on how to sign up for a new system. All data from the DofE mobile application will be transferred to the new ORB system.
Registration into the ORB system

What if the participant started the Award level with the paper Participant’s Book and s/he wants to change to the App?
From September 2017 onwards, most Award units will be using primarily the ORB to administer the programme. Those who are in the middle of a level can choose to either stay with the paper form, or they can re-write all data from the Book to the ORB (this includes the needs to re-write all the activities and goals and to fill in all past trainings and times when they did the activities). Those who completed one level with the paper Book, will automatically switch to the ORB for their next level.
