The Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme

Greenfields School is now an officially licensed organisation for the world-renowned Duke of Edinburgh (DofE) Award .

The DofE Award is recognition of a young person’s successful journey of self-discovery and development, renowned by employers and universities alike for the qualities young people have who’ve achieved a DofE Award.

Its balanced programme develops the whole person – mind, body and soul, in an environment of social interaction and team working.

There are three progressive levels of DofE programmes which, when successfully completed, lead to a Bronze, Silver or Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.

Participants complete a programme of activities in four or five sections that involve helping the community/environment, becoming fitter, developing new skills, planning, training for and completing an expedition and, for Gold only, working with a team on a residential activity.

With the help of DofE Leaders, participants select their own programme of activities and set themselves objectives. It’s not a competition or about being first. It’s all about self-development.

Greenfields School is proud to be part of this Scheme.
