Duke of Edinburgh's Award
The DofE is the world's leading youth achievement award, giving millions of 14 to 24-year-olds the opportunity to be the very best they can be.
Since its creation in 1956 by HRH The Duke of Edinburgh KG KT, the DofE has gone from strength to strength. Guided by the same set of principles and by young people themselves, it’s as relevant today as it was then.
A flexible programme that helps to develop young people for life and work, the numbers speak for themselves: 93% of participants feel that DofE has helped them to work in a team and 84% feel that they have become a more responsible person.
Here at The Sutton Academy we have successfully run the award for a number of years.
