Students will be given the opportunity to work towards a Bronze or Silver DofE award. Since its creation in 1956 by HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, the DofE has gone from strength to strength. Guided by the same set of principles and by young people themselves, it’s as relevant today as it was then.
DofE is a flexible programme that helps to develop young people for life and work, the numbers speak for themselves: 93% of participants feel that DofE has helped them to work in a team and 84% feel that they have become a more responsible person. We have both a rich history and a bright future.
Research has shown that the DofE continues to offer successful personal development programmes for young people. It showed that young people do their DofE to have fun, and that support from Leaders and friends keeps them engaged.
