Duke of Edinburgh Award

Duke of Edinburgh Award

The Duke of Edinburgh award is a flexible programme that helps to develop young people for life and work. The award inspires and transforms the lives of millions of young people from all walks of life. From volunteering to physical activities, life skills to expeditions, achieving a DofE Award is a passport to a brighter future, valued by both colleges and employers. The numbers speak for themselves, 93% of our participants feel that D of E has enabled them to work as part of a team and 84% feel that they have become more responsible people. 100% enjoyed the comradery and social interaction!

Students learn to cope successfully with new situations, new people, and the challenges that come with learning outdoors for extended periods – a huge achievement for our students, who are more comfortable with set routines and minimal change.
