What is the award all about?

The Duke of Edinburgh's Award offers an individual challenge to young people between the ages of 14 and 25. It consists of a balanced, non-competitive programme of voluntary activities, which encourages personal discovery and growth, self-reliance, perseverance, responsibility to themselves and service to the community. In order to gain an award a pupil must show improvement through persistence and achievement. 

What are the benefits of participation?

Universities and future employers are often keen to interview candidates who have gained Duke of Edinburgh's Awards, because they know that such involvement means a young person is proactive and may have developed a whole host of skills.
