Duke of Edinburgh Award

Participating in the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award gives young people the chance to develop skills for work and life and to fulfil their potential. At Icknield Community College we know that completing the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award can be a life changing adventure for your child.


The Award offers 3 levels:

  • Bronze
  • Silver 
  • Gold

At Icknield, we currently provide the opportunity to complete the Bronze Award.


You achieve your Award by completing a personal programme of activities in four sections: Volunteering, Physical, Skills and an Expedition.

Your programme can be full of activities and projects that get you buzzing; along the way, you will gain experiences, friends and talents that will stay with you for the rest of your life. Importantly, you choose your own activities to make up your own programme.

Full details of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award can be found on the official website at www.dofe.org
