Duke of Edinburgh

The International Award is an exciting self-development programme for all young people worldwide. It equips them with life skills, builds their confidence and engages them with their communities. It is a program that invites young people between the ages of 14 and 25 to participate in a number of activities over a set length of time. Participation in The Award is highly regarded by many employers and organisations.

There are three levels to The Award: Bronze/Silver/Gold. Each level has four mandatory sections: Fitness (Physical recreation)/Skill/Volunteering (Community Service)/Adventurous Journey. For Gold there is an additional section – Residential Project. Bronze usually takes 6-12 months to complete, Silver 12-18 months and Gold 18-24 months. Participants, in conjunction with adult helpers, devise an individual program of activities which is flexible enough to satisfy their enthusiasm and meet their aptitudes, capabilities and available resources. Participants are required to show regular activity and commitment to The Award for the duration of their Duke of Edinburgh programme, which is usually a minimum of at least one hour per week.

The Duke of Edinburgh Award has been successfully running at the College since 2004. Every year, approximately thirty students are selected from years nine and ten by invitation to participate in The Bronze Award. Students who successfully complete their Bronze Award may then elect to complete their Silver Award. 2012 has seen our first Gold Award Participants, and we wish them the best of luck. St John Bosco College actively supports students to complete their award, providing them with the opportunity to complete a range of exciting Adventurous Journeys. For most students, these are their biggest challenge, but are ultimately amongst the most rewarding.

Whilst the Award is internationally recognised, and is a great addition to anybody’s resume, it provides students with the opportunity for personal growth and the chance to step outside their comfort zone.
