The Duke of Edinburgh is an internationally recognised Award. It empowers young people to realise their full potential and build a brighter future. Each person who participates in the Award learns a skill, improves their physical well-being, volunteers in their community and undertakes an Adventurous Journey within a team.
At King’s we believe in giving our students every opportunity to be their best self. Through encouraging students to improve and challenge themselves, the Duke of Ed guides students on a journey to find their meaning, purpose and passion in life. Duke of Ed. is not about being the best at something, it is about challenge, commitment, improvement and contribution.
The Award is open to young people from 14-24 yrs of age. There are three levels to the award – bronze, silver and gold. Each level has specific requirements for completion.
