Duke of Edinburgh’s Award

What is it?

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is a really challenging and fun programme of activities offering opportunities to learn new skills and activities, help others, experience adventure, and gives participants a great sense of achievement.
The Award is available worldwide and is recognised by virtually all employers and institutions as worthwhile and will be appreciated on your C.V. Your achievements are recognised by the presentation of the Gold Award at one of the Royal Palaces.
