What is the Award?

Many schoolchildren over the age of 14 enjoy participating in the Duke of Edinburgh's Award. This can be run by some local schools or by other licensed organisations such as the Scouts,  Guides etc.

The Award is a challenging programme of activities which will help you to learn new skills, help others and experience adventure and it will give you a great sense of achievement. What's more, many organisations such as employers and universities take a good view of the Award and what it says about the person who has achieved it.

What does it involve?

There are three levels- Bronze, Silver and Gold - and, for each, you complete activities in four Sections Service, Skills, Physical Recreation and Expeditions. At the Gold level you also take part in a Residential Project.
It's up to you what you do. In each Section there is a wide range of options you can choose from or you can find other similar activities which interest you. This could be something entirely new or you could continue with an activity you already enjoy. The good news is it's not an exam and you can't fail! The Award is about having a go. It's not a competition - you just need a bit of enterprise and perseverance.
Who is it for?

The Award is open to anyone between the age of 14 and 25 years. Special qualifications are not needed, just a willingness to have a go.
Where can I do it?
  • At your local youth club or voluntary youth organisation
  • At your school, college or university
  • Through your employer

    There will be people on hand to offer advice, help review your achievements and to record your successes.
What will I get out of it?
  • Self-belief
  • Self-confidence
  • A sense of identity
  • A sense of responsibility
  • Independence - of thought and action
  • An awareness of your potential
  • New talents and abilities
  • New relationships
  • The ability to lead and work as part of a team
  • The ability to plan and use time effectively
  • Skills including problem solving, presentation and communication
  • The ability to learn from and give to others in the community
  • An understanding of your strengths and weaknesses

    On successful completion, you will be presented with a badge and certificate and at Gold level you are invited to a Presentation Ceremony at one of the Royal Palaces.
