Welcome to the Duke of Edinburgh’s (DofE) Award at Nunthorpe Academy.

Taking part in Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is a real adventure from start to finish. There are no entry requirements other than you must be aged between 14 and 24 and have a real passion for getting out there and making things happen.

The award programme is run at three levels, Bronze, Silver and Gold. Each award level is achieved by completing four different activity sections (five for Gold).

People who take part in the award find themselves developing a lot of new skills, getting fitter, making new friends, going on expeditions and making decisions for themselves.

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is an adventure…

Award Levels

There are three levels to the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, Bronze, Silver and Gold. Individuals usually progress through the levels starting with the Bronze Award. The main difference between the Awards is the minimum length of time it takes to complete and an individual’s age.

Minimum ages for the different awards:

  • Bronze – 14 years

Bronze Award:

In order to complete the Bronze award there are four sections that need to be completed:

  • Service (3 months)
  • Skill (3 months)
  • Physical (3 months)
  • Expedition (plan, train and complete a 2 day and 1 night challenge)

A further 3 months is spent on service, skill or physical.
