The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (commonly known as DofE) is internationally recognised and considered valuable by employers.

Known as the ‘Golden A Level’, students completing the Silver or Gold awards develop considerable skills in team work, communication and problem solving. 93% of participants believe that having a DofE Award has helped them secure employment or a place at university.

Participation in selected ABC clubs will contribute to your final Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.

The aim is to inspire, guide and support young people in their self-development and to recognise their achievement. Students gaining the Gold award will be presented with it at one of the Royal Palaces in London.
