The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award
The college has a thriving Duke of Edinburgh’s Award group.
Students learn and experience all four sections of the award, namely: service, expeditions, skills and physical recreation. Participants can develop existing interests or try something new.
There are three levels: bronze for those over 14, silver for those over 15, gold for those over 16.
The success of the award is based on a partnership between adults and young people. For adults, the scheme provides an opportunity to share their skills and experience with young people. This can lead to better understanding between the young and the not-so-young, and strengthen co-operation within the community.
The award is an invaluable opportunity to develop interpersonal and leadership skills. It offers new challenges, adventure, a sense of achievement, new friends, a highly valued award and FUN!
