Duke of Edinburgh’s Award

Across the schools and colleges in the Lionheart Educational Trust there is an active Duke of Edinburgh’s Award programme covering the Bronze, Silver and Gold levels.


Highly respected by employers and Higher Education, the DofE programme is known and celebrated for encouraging personal development and togetherness. So, Be Adventurous, Be Bold.

Each level of the Award has four elements that have to be completed typically over three to twelve months depending on the level:

Element Example
Volunteering Voluntary work in the local community that could be combined with potential work experience e.g. Teaching, Coaching, Childcare.
Physical Regular participation in a sport or fitness activity e.g. Football or Netball Teams/Clubs
Skills Learn or improve a skill over a period of time e.g. Cooking or Music.
Expedition A two to four day walking journey with camping to develop teamwork.
Residential Gold only. Time away from home meeting new people in a different environment.

Experience tells us that each level of the award provides a young person with new insights into their capabilities and by trying new things it helps confidence to grow plus develop useful skills. The official Duke of Edinburgh’s Award website offers a lot more information.
