What is the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme?

For over 60 years now the Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme has been available to young people aged 14-25. Its mission since its inception has been to encourage personal discovery, self-reliance and responsibility in an environment of social interaction and teamwork. 

The DofE's Award is a challenging programme of activities which will help students learn new skills, help others within the community and experience adventure; giving students a great sense of achievement.

More information is available in the parent's information booklet here.

Why participate in Duke of Edinburgh Award?

The Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme is a real adventure. Every section gives you something different - you will develop new skills, make new friends and complete new challenges.

Achieving an Award will give you skills, confidence and a view on life that everyone is looking for, from employers to colleges and universities. It proves that you are able to commit to tasks, are good at teamwork and are up for a challenge.

In addition, you will get recognised for doing things you want to do (and may even be doing already). Plus you will make a difference to other people’s lives and your community, be fitter and healthier, make new friends and have memories to last you a lifetime.

Above all, you will enjoy it!
