What is the Duke of Edinburgh's Award?

The award was set up by HRH Prince Phillip, The Duke of Edinburgh, in 1956 to "inspire, guide and support young people in their self-development and recognise their achievements". The award demonstrates your ability to commit to a range of challenging and rewarding activites over a sustained period of time. These might be things you are doing already, such as college rowing, or you could try something completely different like Tiddlywinks. Employers recognise the dedication and effort that is involved in obtaining a Duke of Edinburgh's Award and what it says about you as a person. If you wish to find out more about the different levels and sections in the award please click here.
