Duke of Edinburgh

From KS4 students at Critchill School can access a DofE programme and we currently offer both Bronze and Silver Duke of Edinburgh’s Awards.

There are four sections to complete at Bronze and Silver level.

  • Helping the community/environment
  • Becoming fitter
  • Developing new skills
  • Planning & training and completing an expedition

Any young person can do their DofE regardless of ability, gender or background. Achieving an Award isn’t a competition or about being first. It’s all about setting personal challenges and pushing personal boundaries.

The Duke of Edinburgh Awards are:

  • A life-changing experience
  • A fun time with friends
  • An opportunity to discover new interests and talents
  • A tool to develop essential skills for life and work
  • A recognised mark of achievement; respected by employers
