The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award equips young people for life and work and is the world’s leading achievement award. Since the Award’s launch nearly 60 years ago, it has inspired and created opportunities for young people to develop skills, get physically active, give service and experience adventure.
The Award can play a critical role in students’ development outside the classroom. It also allows their achievement to be consistently recognised worldwide, giving young people unique international accreditation of their experiences. Young people who participate in the Award become more confident and resilient, and develop skills in areas such as communication, problem solving and leadership.
To achieve the Award, each student must learn a skill, improve their physical wellbeing, volunteer in their community and experience a team adventure.
Further information about the award and how to apply can be found on the Student Information Canvas page.
