What is Duke of Edinburgh? 
A DofE programme is a real adventure from beginning to end. You just need to be aged between 14 and 24 and realise there’s more to life than sitting on a sofa watching life pass you by.
 
You can do programmes at three levels, Bronze, Silver or Gold, which lead to a Duke of Edinburgh's Award. You achieve this by completing a personal programme of activities in four sections (five if you're going for Gold). You'll find yourself helping people or the community, getting fitter,developing skills, going on an expedition and taking part in a residential activity (Gold only). But here's the best bit - you get to choose what you do! Your programme can be full of activities and projects that get you buzzing. And along the way you’ll pick up experiences, friends and talents that will stay with you for the rest of your life.
Achieving an Award will give you skills, confidence and a view on life that everyone is looking for, from employers to colleges and universities.
