The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award
We are delighted to confirm that we are launching The Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme. which is a national youth charity that teaches young people how to learn new skills, help others in their community, have fun and make new friends. Completing the award gives young people a great sense of achievement and is also really valued by employers, colleges and universities.
Students start their DofE journey in Year 9 with the Bronze Award.
To achieve this award participants must complete a programme of activities in four or five sections. These involve helping the community/environment, becoming fitter, developing new skills, planning, training for and completing an expedition. With the help of DofE Leaders, participants select their own programme of activities and set themselves objectives.
