Duke of Edinburgh’s Award

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is recognition of a young person’s successful journey of self-discovery and development, renowned by employers and universities alike for the qualities young people have who’ve achieved a D of E Award.

Its balanced programme develops the whole person – mind, body and soul, in an environment of social interaction and team working.

There are three progressive levels of D of E programmes which, when successfully completed, lead to a Bronze, Silver or Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.

At Fullhurst we have been a licenced centre for the past 5 years and currently offer Bronze award to year 10 students at a cost of £24. We believe that all students should be given the opportunity to take part in extracurricular enrichment activities.

In order to achieve the Award participants need to complete a programme of activities in four sections that involve helping the community/environment (volunteering), becoming fitter (physical), developing new skills (skills), planning, training for and completing 2 expeditions.

With the help of DofE Leaders, participants select their own programme of activities and set themselves objectives. It’s not a competition or about being first. It’s all about self-development.

In order to achieve the Bronze Award students must attend all of the training sessions, plan and prepare for a practice expedition and complete an assessed expedition.
