Duke of Edinburgh
We offer our Year 10 students the opportunity to take the Duke of Edinburgh Award at Silver Level. All Sixth form students can complete the Award at Gold Level.
The Award Scheme offers young people a challenge through a balanced programme of activities, in which they are encouraged to serve others, acquire new skills and experience adventure.
The Award must be undertaken in the participant’s leisure time. It is non-competitive, being based on individual improvement and achievement, reflecting personal choice, initiative and perseverance.
Participants can develop existing interests or try something new. Whatever they choose to do for their award, they can find enjoyment, excitement and satisfaction.
All information will be posted on this page of the website regarding expeditions in due course.
The City of Birmingham Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Association has been set up to serve the national Duke of Edinburgh`s Award within the City of Birmingham, supporting young people and leaders by providing grants to participating young people.
Income is used for the benefit of persons aged 14 to 25 who are partaking in the DofE from a DofE group from any Licensed Organisation within the City of Birmingham by awarding small grants of approx. £50-£100 to individuals. Further information is available and applications can be made via the website. http://bhamdoeawardassoc.webs.com/
