Duke of Edinburgh’s Award

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme is highly regarded by both employers and further education establishments alike and is a real adventure for students in Years 10 and above.

In order to achieve their award, students must take part in four sections; a skill, physical recreation, service and an expedition. Additionally, at gold level, participants must undertake a five-day residential visit of their choice.

The award scheme is challenging and requires commitment and determination. Participants can design their own award to suit their interests and levels of ability. All that is required is that they show progress and participate regularly. The expedition section provides wonderful opportunities to develop team work and leadership skills, as well the opportunity to explore the stunning landscape around us.

Those who take part in the scheme will reap huge benefits in terms of personal development and enjoyment and gives the students the skills, confidence and a view on life that everyone is looking for.
