Duke of Edinburgh

Duke of Edinburgh Scheme

Rama Life are licenced to provide the Duke of Edinburgh scheme to any of our members who are Electively Home Educated, in Somerset, Devon, Dorset and Cornwall and meet the age requirements.

For more details please get in touch.

The Duke of Edinburgh scheme can be a life-changing experience that foccuses on self-development, supporting the community and gaining positive experiences with friends.

14-24 year-olds can do a DofE programme at one of three progressive levels which, when successfully completed, leads to a Bronze, Silver or Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.

There are four sections to complete at Bronze and Silver level and five at Gold. They 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.

Achieving an Award isn’t a competition or about being first. It’s all about setting personal challenges and pushing personal boundaries. (Taken from https://www.dofe.org/do/what/)
