The Duke of Edinburgh Award
Begun in 1956 by HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, the Duke of Edinburgh Award or DofE has gone on from strength to strength. Guided by the same set of principles and by young people themselves, it’s as relevant today as it was then.
A flexible programme that helps to develop young people for life and work, the numbers speak for themselves: 93% of participants feel that DofE has helped them to work in a team and 84% feel that they have become a more responsible person.
From 1,000 DofE Awards achieved in year one to 133,369 last year, it has a a rich history and a bright future.
