Students are encouraged to work for the Award under the renowned youth charity for all young people aged 14-24. They benefit enormously from the chance to develop skills for life and work, fulfill their potential and have a bright future.
Doing their DofE can be a life-changing adventure for your child. On the way, they will do their own exciting and challenging programme of activities to help them reach their full potential. They’ll learn new skills, help others, have fun, make new friends and gain a great sense of achievement. Employers, colleges and universities really value Duke of Edinburgh’s Awards and know what it says about someone who’s an Award holder.
For young people, a DofE programme is a real adventure from beginning to end. It doesn’t matter who they are or where they’re from. They just need to be aged between 14 and 24 and realise there’s more to life than sitting on a sofa watching life pass them by.
Young people can do programmes at three levels, Bronze, Silver or Gold, which lead to a Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.
