The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award
Students who are 14 years (Year 9) and over can take part in the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, which is internationally recognised. The best bit is you choose your own activities and set your own goals.

There are three levels and each level has the same structure, just varying levels of commitment.

Bronze
The Bronze Award takes at least 6 months to complete.

*Choose one activity (Service, Skill or Physical Recreation) to become your major and complete an additional 3 months.

Silver
The Silver Award takes 6 months if you have a Bronze Award and 12 months if you don’t**.

** If you do not have a Bronze Award, you must complete a major—an extra 6 months in one of Physical Recreation, Skill or Service (that is, 12 months total in one of these sections).
