Duke of Edinburgh's Award
The Duke of Edinburgh's Award is a challenging programme that gives young people the opportunity to experience new activities, develop skills and interests as well as fulfil their potential as active citizens in Derbyshire.
Anyone between the ages of 14 and 25 years can undertake a DofE programme at one of the Bronze, Silver or Gold levels. Activities are undertaken for a specific period of time in each of the following sections:
− residential (gold level only)
DofE programmes are delivered across the county by schools, voluntary organisations, youth clubs and open DofE Centres. These are supported by Derbyshire County Council DofE Operating Authority who are licence holders for the delivery of DofE in Derbyshire.
Currently in Derbyshire there are:
− over 3,900 participants involved in DofE;
− in 70 DofE Centres;
− supported by over 300 leaders and volunteers.
You can find out more about enrolling as a participant, running a DofE Centre or helping as a volunteer with Duke of Edinburgh's Award on these pages. Or you can contact a member of the DofE staff team for more information.
