The Duke of Edinburgh is the world’s leading achievement award for young people. It is a balanced programme of activities aimed at developing a student in an environment of social interaction and team work. It also encourages young people to take on challenges and live life as an adventure.
West Craven High schools understands it is more important than ever that young people are able to learn and demonstrate key employability skills after they leave school. By doing the Bronze Award, students will learn employability skills like communication, team work, decision making and leadership. At West Craven, we value our students which is why we are giving them the opportunity to achieve something that we feel will benefit them immensely when they leave school whatever path they take.
In addition to the fun activities, knowledge and skills, our experienced leaders will deliver a 6-9 month programme which will demand regular activities and commitment averaging at least one hour a week. The information below shows you the minimum timescales and sections for the Bronze Award:
Volunteering: To complete the Volunteering section, the student must undertake a service to an individual or a community.
Physical: To complete the Physical section, the student must take part is an area of sport, dance or fitness activity.
Skill: To complete the Skill section, the student must develop practical skills, social skills or a personal interest. We recommend the skill section is completed at home or outside of school.
Expedition: The participants will participate in planning and training for their expeditions, completing a practice expedition and qualifying expedition.
