The Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme

Published on

The DofE, as it is more often known, is a scheme of awards for young people aged 14 to 24, which recognises their achievements in the fields of Volunteering, Physical Activity, Skills and in completing a Team Expedition. Most British boarding schools support students to complete the award, whether at Bronze, Silver or Gold level, due to its universal recognition as proof of an individual’s commitment, resilience and teamwork.
