The Duke of Edinburgh's Award
A life-changing experience. A fun time with friends. An opportunity to discover new interests and talents. A tool to develop essential skills for life and work. A recognised mark of achievement; respected by employers.
The DofE is many things to many people, supporting generations to successfully navigate adult life.
DofE is a programme for year 9 studetns which, when successfully completed, leads to a Bronze Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.
There are four sections to complete at Bronze level. They involve helping the community/environment, becoming fitter, developing new skills, planning, training for and completing an expedition.
Choose the things you love to do or try something completely new, help your community, test your limits, enhance your skills, and grow your confidence. It’s your DofE, so do it your way.
There are four main sections of a DofE programme; Volunteering, Physical, Skills, and Expedition.
Below, find the requirements for each section, including information on what activities count and how long to do them.
