Duke of Edinburgh's Award
come to be known as The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award”
The Duke of Edinburgh's Award has been a British institution for over 65 years now and during that time has become a highly sought after Award which is widely recognised by British employers and Universities alike.
The reason why both employers and Universities have such high regard for the Award are the skills it instils in young people and the level of commitment it demands.
The skills students develop while undertaking the Award are:
A sense of identity
Independence of thought and action
A sense of responsibility
An awareness of their potential
New talents and responsibilities
The Award achieves this by providing a balanced, non-competitive programme which is voluntary and available to all.
Further information about The Award, in general, can be found at www.dofe.org.
