A Duke of Edinburgh’s (DofE) Award programme is a real adventure from beginning to end. It doesn’t matter who you are or where you’re from. You just need to be aged between 14 and 24 and realise there’s more to life than sitting on a sofa watching life pass you by.

The City of Leicester College offers the chance for all its students from years 9, 10, 11 and Sixth Form to take on their Bronze DofE Award. Those that have already achieved their Bronze also have a chance to take their skills to the next level by taking on the Silver Award. We don’t currently offer the Gold Award, however, we are planning to introduce this to opportunity for all our Silver award holders soon. Please note that we do not currently take on any direct entrants for the Silver or Gold Awards.

To achieve your award you’ll find yourself helping people or the community, getting fitter, developing skills, going on an expedition and taking part in a residential activity (Gold only).

But here’s the best bit – you get to choose what you do! Your programme can be full of activities and projects that get you buzzing and along the way you’ll pick up experiences, friends and talents that will stay with you for the rest of your life. You will also receive a certificate for the most recognised youth achievement award in the world!
