The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award

The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award, the world’s leading youth achievement award, equips young people for life by inspiring them to dream big, celebrate their achievements and make a difference in their community. In 2018, more than 1.1 million young people took part in the award, finding their purpose, place and passion in an ever-changing world.


Forging resilience, leadership, and character through challenge.

The award plays a critical role in the personal development of our students outside the classroom and will transform those who take part. The course provides the opportunity to become more confident and resilient, develop skills in areas such as communication, problem-solving and leadership, and helps students stand out when applying for university and seeking employment in the future.

Through developing transferable skills, increasing their fitness levels, volunteering in their community and cultivating a sense of adventure, students gain an internationally recognised formal accreditation, opening up opportunities and experiences across the globe.

“I chose to do the Duke of Edinburgh Award because you get to give back to the community. Also, it’s really fun because you work in a team and meet new people through community service. You get new opportunities whilst doing it, and of course, it looks good on your CV!”

“I signed up because it is good for a college application, it’s enjoyable, and I love physical activity. I love working in teams, and it’s good to know some basic survival skills, learning to fend and provide for yourself.”

"There are many reasons why I decided to sign up for the award. It’s a great way to learn something new and requires us to work as a team. It also looks great on a CV when applying for a new job or going to university. I also want to have fun and enjoy it as much as possible.”
