Duke of Edinburgh

At Park Community School, we are committed to providing students in Years 9, 10 and 11 with access to the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme.
 
The Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme is a voluntary non-competitive programme of practical, cultural and adventurous activities.  It is designed to support the personal and social development of young people, regardless of gender, background or ability. It offers an individual challenge and encourages young people to undertake exciting, constructive, challenging and enjoyable activities in their free time. What’s more, many organisations such as employers and universities take a good view of the Award and what it says about the person who has achieved it.

Why should you do the Duke of Edinburgh?

  • You’ll enjoy loads of new experiences, discover talents you never thought you had, challenge yourself and meet loads of people just like you.
  • Achieving an Award will give you skills, confidence and a view on life that everyone is looking for, from employers to colleges and universities.
  • You’re getting recognised for doing things you want to do and may even be doing already
  • You’ll make a difference to other people’s lives and your community, be fitter and healthier, make new friends and have memories to last you a lifetime.
