Are you a Scout, Explorer Scout, Young Leader, Network Scout or Leader under 25 who likes Scouting but is looking for further challenge and a chance to learn some new skills? The Duke of Edinburgh’s (DofE) Award gives you a chance to do all this, achieving personal goals and working as a team. There are three levels of awards: Bronze, Silver and Gold. Each has similar requirements, but a progressive level of skill and dedication.  As well as being a great adventure, many employers highly regard the award and can give you the edge when looking for work in the future – a very worthwhile attribute to have on your CV or UCAS personal statement. You can find out more about Duke of Edinburgh’s Awards here.
