Duke of Edinburgh’s Award

It has been a quiet term with regards to the Award with current year 11 students finishing off and waiting to receive their certificates. Congratulations to all our achievers – here’s to the next level.

Why do the DofE Award? For the hundreds of thousands of young people who take part each year across the world, the benefits of achieving a DofE Award at any level are endless. DofE is about helping you along the path to a productive and prosperous future. As many of our participants say, it’s life-changing.

Achieving an Award will give you skills, confidence and an edge over others when you apply for college, university or a job. Beyond your academic achievements, universities want to see evidence of so called ‘soft skills’ that you have developed through extra-curricular activities, such as communication, commitment, leadership and teamwork. Your DofE Award is a fantastic way to demonstrate and evidence these skills in practice.

You’ll also 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.

Enrolments are now open for the next cohort of students at Bronze and Silver level. If you would like to know more please contact Mrs Mason (lmason@redbridgeschool.co.uk) or look out for the parentmails for sign up details. Training will start in the New Year.
