Duke of Edinburgh
The DofE programme is a series of activities covering different categories that participants select and undertake to achieve a Bronze, Silver or Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Award. The programme is all about self development. It focuses on helping young people to improve existing skills or gain new talents, abilities or perspectives, and being the best they can.
Through participation pupils make new friends, develop social and inter-personal skills, and increase their initiative, organisational skills; independence and self confidence.
Completion of the Assessed Expedition and of the final Award gives a great sense of achievement. What’s more, the Award is highly prestigious, and valued by colleges, universities and employers.
