Duke of Edinburgh Award

To inspire, guide and support young people in their self development and recognise their achievements.

The Curriculum

Young people doing their DofE programme complete four different types of activity at Bronze and Silver level and five at Gold level to achieve an Award:

Volunteering: undertake service to individuals or the community.  This develops compassion, commitment and the confidence to make a difference.

Physical: improve in an area of sport, dance or fitness activities.  This develops fitness, enjoyment and, depending on the activity, teamwork.

Skills: develop practical and social skills and personal interests.  This helps young people to realise their unique potential and gain greater self-esteem.

Expedition: plan, train for, and complete an adventurous journey in the UK or abroad.  This develops teamwork and leadership, and challenges young people to push themselves beyond their expectations.

Residential (Gold level only): stay and work away from home doing a shared activity.  Again this challenges young people, who must work with strangers to achieve a positive goal.
