Like Scouting, but looking for a challenge and a chance to learn some new skills?
The Duke of Edinburgh's Award gives you a chance to do all this, achieving personal goals and working as a team.
The award has 3 levels, bronze, silver and gold. Each has similar requirements, but a progressive level of skill and dedication. The Chief Scout's Platinum Award, the Chief Scout's Diamond Award and the Queen's Scout Award have similar requirements and can be completed alongside The Duke of Edinburgh scheme. You can complete any of these awards until your 25th birthday.
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.
