The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award

The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award (the Award) equips young people for life. It is the world’s leading youth achievement award.

By creating opportunities for young people to develop skills, get physically active, give service and experience adventure, the Award can play a critical role in their development outside the classroom. It also allows their achievement to be consistently recognised worldwide, giving young people unique international accreditation of their experiences. 

Young people

The Award allows young people with existing good access to non-formal education to challenge themselves and discover the world around them.

For young people with partial/potential access to non-formal education, the Award helps to boost their skills and develop leadership potential.

Young people that are marginalised and at risk can exceed their own expectations by doing the Award.
