The Duke of Edinburgh's Award is one of the world's best-known and most respected achievement awards - and now you have the chance to get involved and achieve your Bronze Duke of Edinburgh's Award.


What’s required from the young person?

You can do a Bronze DofE programme once you’re 14 (or nearly 14, which sometimes happens when you and your friends decide to start your adventure together. However, your Leader must get permission from their Licensed Organisation first)

  • A Bronze DofE programme has 4 sections, Volunteering, Physical, Skills and Expedition (above).

  • You must do a minimum of 3 months activity for each of the Volunteering, Physical and Skills sections, and plan, train for and do a 2 day (1 night) expedition (plus a practice expedition).

  • You also have to spend an extra three months on one of the Volunteering, Physical or Skills sections. It’s your choice which one and, though you can change your mind later, you should decide which section you want to do for longer at the beginning. Knowing how long you’re going to do it for will help you to choose your activity and set your goals for each section.

  • It will usually take you at least 9-12 months to complete your Bronze programme.

At the moment, we are only taking participants on the Bronze level as above.
