Congratulations to everyone who has completed their Duke of Edinburgh’s Award in the last 12 months.
They have worked hard and shown great commitment, as it takes about a year to complete a Bronze or Silver Award and even longer for Gold.
We’d like to offer our congratulations below to everyone involved.
To achieve the Bronze Award, participants must spend 3 or 6 months taking part in a Physical Activity, developing a Skill and Volunteering in the community.
They must also complete two 2-day expeditions covering a distance of around 24km.
They will have spent around 200 hours working towards this award.
To achieve the Silver Award, participants must take part in a Physical Activity, develop a Skill and Volunteer in the community.
They also have to complete two 3-day expeditions covering a distance of around 48km.
They will have spent around 250 hours working towards this award.
Congratulations to Imogen Hancox
To achieve the Gold Award, participants spend a year volunteering in the community, taking part in a physical activity and developing a skill. They must also complete a 5 day residential course and two 4-day expeditions of around 80km.
They will have spent around 500 hours working towards this award.
This is an amazing achievement as only around 12,000 young people in the UK complete this Award every year and most of these have usually left school before completion.
They will be invited to one of the Royal Palaces to be presented with their certificates (as soon as lockdown restrictions allow).
