Duke of Edinburgh Awards
The Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme is a national youth charity that teaches young people how to learn new skills, help others in their community, have fun and make new friends. Completing the award gives young people a great sense of achievement and is also really valued by employers, colleges and universities.
