The Duke of Edinburgh Award is a great, nationally recognized award that all cadets are actively involved with on the squadron. The award is broken down into 4 levels – Gold, Silver, Bronze, and now a Blue, Pre-DofE award which is a gently introduction to the requirements of the full award.
To achieve a DofE award, participants must complete 4 sections consisting of an expedition, a commitment of service, a show of skill and demonstration of physical capability. Each level scales on difficulty.
As a Squadron, we pride ourselves on ensuring each cadet has the opportunity to participate. Most cadet will achieve their bronze award within 18 months of being on the squadron. The DofE award is something that will last your lifetime, along with the memories it creates.
