Duke of Edinburgh’s Award
At Beauchamp College, there has been an active Duke of Edinburgh’s Award programme for a number of years across all three levels; Bronze, Silver and Gold.
Each level of the Award has four elements that have to be completed typically over three to twelve months depending on the level:
|Volunteering||Voluntary work in the local community that could be combined with potential work experience e.g. Teaching, Coaching, Childcare.|
|Physical||Regular participation in a sport or fitness activity e.g. Football or Netball Teams/Clubs|
|Skills||Learn or improve a skill over a period of time e.g. Cooking or Music.|
|Expedition||A two to four day walking journey with camping to develop teamwork.|
|Residential||Gold only. Time away from home meeting new people in a different environment.|
Experience tells us that each level of the award provides a young person with new insights into their capabilities and by trying new things it helps confidence to grow plus develop useful skills. The official Duke of Edinburgh’s Award website offers a lot more information (www.dofe.org) and if you want to get involved or wish to learn more about continuing the programme email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
|Bronze||£310||These prices include; DofE Award Registration, Expedition Training/Support and Transport/Accommodation. Excluded is Expedition Food and any personal Expedition Clothing E.g. Walking Boots, Waterproofs. The College can loan out Tents and Rucksacks.|
