Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme

Are you aged between 14 and 24? Interested in exploring new territories, building new skills and taking on adventures?


We are looking for individuals to take part in the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award. Not heard of it? Don’t worry, here’s a brief synopsis. The scheme is a flexible programme that promotes confidence and independence whilst broadening your horizons. There are three progressive Award levels: Bronze, Silver and Gold...

Duke of Edinburgh

The Bronze Award

The Bronze Award provides the opportunity for young people across the nation to volunteer, take up a new skill, try a physical activity and tackle an overnight expedition. You only need to spend an hour each week for three months on each section and, depending on which section you enjoy the most (volunteering, physical activity or skill), you will need to complete a further three months of your preferred activity to achieve the Bronze Award.


Not sure which activities qualify? Here are some examples:​

This list is by no means exhaustive, there are hundreds of opportunities just waiting to be explored.

Equally as exciting is the prospect of going on a two-day, one-night expedition. We can tailor it to your individual needs and it’s a fantastic way to enhance team work skills and meet new people. This year’s cohort of DofE participants are undertaking an expedition in a beautiful, fully accessible venue in the Lake District so why not follow in their footsteps / wheel tracks?

This is the perfect chance to boost your CV or university applications and, most importantly, it will allow you to have fun whilst pushing yourself that extra mile.
