Duke of Edinburgh Award

The above award is split into three levels – Bronze, Silver and Gold. This award can be worked for through various organisations and schools. Each level is then split into four sections – Physical Recreation, Skills, Service and Expedition, with an additional section of Residential for the Gold Award. The Award takes a lot of time, hard work and determination to complete, from 6 months to two years per award depending upon the level. We have had many of our Brigaders complete various DOE awards and we are very proud of them all. It is a great achievement for them.
