What is the Duke of Edinburgh's Award?

The DofE is a voluntary, non-competitive programme designed for young people ages 14-25. There are four sections that students need to complete:

  1. Volunteering – To encourage students to help in the local community.
  2. Skill – To encourage the discovery and development of practical and social skills and personal interests. As an organisation we offer a nationally recognised First Aid certificate through St John Ambulance.
  3. Physical – To encourage participation or improvement of a physical activity.
  4. Expedition – To encourage a spirit of adventure and discovery by preparing for and carrying out an adventurous journey as part of a team.
