Redland Green Students Embark on the Duke of Edinburgh’s (DofE) Award

This year Redland Green School sees the first group of students working towards their bronze Duke of Edinburgh’s Award. This is a new initiative for Redland Green School and one that students and staff are really exciting to be getting involved with.

The Duke of Edinburgh's Award was started in 1956 and is dedicated to the personal development of young people from all backgrounds. With the widest reach of any UK youth charity, 275,000 young people undertake inspiring DofE programmes to achieve Bronze, Silver or Gold Duke of Edinburgh's Awards every year.

There are four parts to the Bronze and Silver level awards and five at Gold. With assistance from adult leaders, students select and set objectives in each of the following areas:

At Gold level, participants must do an additional fifth Residential section, which involves staying and working away from home doing a shared activity.

In order to embark on the DofE awards programme, students need to be aged 14. There are 21 students at Redland Green involved with DofE this year and we are looking at getting more groups starting as soon as possible, due to high demand by students. Watch this space for more information!
