Duke of Edinburgh's Award

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is a voluntary, non-competitive programme of practical, cultural and adventurous activities, designed to support the personal and social development of young people aged 14-25, regardless of gender, background or ability. It offers an individual challenge and encourages young people to undertake exciting, constructive, challenging and enjoyable activities in their free time. All Awards must be completed by the participant’s 25th birthday. The scheme started in 1956 and its Founder and Patron is HRH The Duke of Edinburgh.

The Air Training Corps is the largest operator of the Duke of Edinburgh's Award scheme in the world. There are three awards:

Bronze, Silver and Gold.

Participants attempting the Bronze & Silver award must also fulfil the requirements of the four sections:

Physical Recreation

The Gold award also requires that you undertake a residential project.

The latest date for entry into the scheme is the 23rd birthday. The award is highly regarded by employers as it shows that the cadet enjoys a challenge, has self-confidence and is able to work as part of a team.
