Duke of Edinburgh’s Award
What is the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme?
The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme (“DofE”) is a voluntary, non-competitive programme of activities for anyone aged 14-24. Its ethos is to enable every young person of every background to do their DofE and succeed, regardless of any barriers. It provides a balanced programme of activities that develop the whole person – mind, body and soul – in an environment of social interaction and teamworking. Taking part builds confidence and develops self-esteem. It requires persistence, commitment and has a lasting impact on the attitudes and outlook of all young people who do their DofE.
