Duke of Edinburgh

The Duke of Edinburgh Award (DofE) offers students the change of a life-changing experience. A fun time with friends. An opportunity to discover new interests and talents. A tool to develop essential skills for life and work. As well as a recognised mark of achievement; respected by employers.

There are 3 levels of award which the starting years are as follows;  Bronze Yr9, Silver Yr10 and Gold Yr12

There are four sections to complete at Bronze and Silver level and five at Gold. They involve helping the Volunteering: community/environment, Physical: becoming fitter, Skill: developing new skills, Expedition: planning, training for and completing an expedition and, for Gold only, Residential: working with a team on a residential activity.

The DofE is open to all in the above year groups with an application process, due to limited spaces. Achieving an Award isn’t a competition or about being first. It’s all about setting personal challenges and pushing personal boundaries.

Through a DofE programme young people have fun, make friends, improve their self-esteem and build confidence. They gain essential skills and attributes for work and life such as resilience, problem-solving, team-working, communication and drive, enhancing CVs, university and job applications. Top employers recognise the work-ready skills Award holders bring to their business.

Here at Glyn we have an amazing team of people who help deliver the award who are listed below, along with using the skills and expertise of a company called Learn Outdoors.

Ms Wilson-David – DofE Manager

Mr Macgregor – Bronze Leader

Miss Stoke – Silver Leader

Miss Hinchcliffe – Gold Leader

This team, along with other members of staff who help with the expedition sections, allow us to take up to 63 Bronze, 49 Silver and 14 Gold participants at the moment, with the hope of expanding the programme within Glyn in the future.
