The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Programme

As one of the UK’s leading youth charities the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award reaches many people in many different ways and gives young adults the chance to fulfil their potential.
Nottingham City has its own Duke of Edinburgh’s license, coordinated by the Sport, Outdoor Learning and Adventure Team, which allows us to run a full programme on behalf of schools and youth groups.  We want to encourage all young people from across the City who are aged Year 9 upwards to gain this award. Many of the adventure opportunities we offer at an earlier age help to stimulate the interest, drive and perseverance necessary for success.So if you’re interested in doing the various activities involved, meeting new people and trying new challenges then The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme is for you.

Activities Include

  • Volunteering – helping someone, your community or the environment.
  • Physical – becoming fitter through sport, dance or fitness activities.
  • Skills – developing existing talents or trying something new.
  • Expedition – planning, training for and completing an adventurous journey!
  • Residential (Gold only) – staying and working away from home as part of a team.

Residentials are now available on our Narrowboat Project which is a Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Approved Activity Provider.
