The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (DofE) is a fantastic opportunity for students and gives them the chance to do something completely new and improve on things they are already doing. It takes them out of their comfort zone and into a place where they will push themselves and have amazing new experiences. They will build confidence, resilience, skills for work and new friendship groups. Colleges, universities and employers regard The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award highly.
