Are you ready for a challenge? Explore the great outdoors and build up practical, personal and leadership skills with these nationally recognised qualifications.
You will need to be committed, enthusiastic and ready for action!

Each year approximately 40 students participate in the award scheme. You will meet once a week and take part in a minimum of three training ventures for the expedition. The numbers we can accommodate on expeditions are limited so places are allocated on a first come first serve basis.
You must be prepared to commit four weekends and to pay towards the cost of the expeditions for your Duke of Edinburgh Award. In return, participation generates self-confidence, genuine achievement and an award that is internationally recognised by universities and employers.
