Duke of Edinburgh Awards

The Duke of Edinburgh Award
A Duke of Edinburgh’s (DofE) Award programme is a real adventure from beginning to end. It does
not matter who you are or where you’re from. You just need to be aged between 14 and 24 and
realise there’s more to life than sitting on a sofa watching life pass you by.

Sir Jonathan North Community College offers the chance for all its Year 9 pupils to take on their
Bronze DofE Award. Once they have achieved this they will also have a chance to take their skills to
the next level with the Silver Award in Year 10. We do not offer the Gold Award as participants must
be 16+ years old, but they may get this opportunity when they go to sixth form college. Please note
that we do not currently take on any direct entrants for the Silver (when participants take on their
Silver award without having a Bronze Award).

Duke of Edinburgh Awards

To achieve your award you need to complete four sections:
- Volunteering; help people or the community
- Physical; to help you strive to become physically fitter
- Skill; take on a challenge to learn more about an interest you have
- Expedition; go on a hiking and camping trip.
And here’s the best bit – you get to choose what you do! Your programme can be full of activities
and projects that get you buzzing and along the way you’ll pick up experiences, friends and talents
that will stay with you for the rest of your life. You will also receive a certificate for the most
recognised youth achievement award in the world!
