The Duke of Edinburgh’s award is an internationally acclaimed charity which challenges young people to be the best they can be. There are three levels to the award, bronze, silver and gold. Each of these levels is made up of four sections: service, skill, recreation and an expedition. The gold also includes an additional residential section. It requires persistence, commitment and has been seen to have a long lasting effect on the lives of those who take part. The benefits of the Duke of Edinburgh Award are huge. Whether you’ve got Bronze, Silver or Gold level on your C.V, it tells employers that you are self-sufficient, healthy, giving and skilled.
