Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award

 

The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award is available to all 14 – 24 year olds and is the world’s leading youth achievement award. It equips all young people for life regardless of their background, culture, physical ability, skills and interests.

Since the Award began in 1956, its aim has been to help young people plan and undertake their own programme of activities to develop themselves mentally, physically and emotionally.

The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award is widely recognised by employers and education providers as the definitive qualification for demonstrating self‐reliance, commitment and dedication. All this, and a lot of fun along the way.

More information on the Award can be found on the official Duke of Edinburgh International Award website.
