Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme
There is more to education than exams. Doing a DofE award builds confidence and expands horizons.
Students who achieve the award demonstrate persistence, resilience, commitment and personal development over a period of time. The Award is the world’s leading programme for young people, recognised by employers and universities alike. In highlighting the activities you have undertaken as part of your DofE programme on your UCAS or college application form, you are telling the institution that you have an ambitious and positive attitude, as well as a wide range of interests.
National Citizen Service
National Citizen Service (NCS) is open to all 16 and 17-year-olds in England. It helps you build your skills for work and life, while you take on new challenges and meet new friends.
NCS runs in the spring, summer and autumn. Participants have a short time away from home and take part in a team project that will help the community. It encourages personal and social development by working on skills like leadership, teamwork and communication.
Participants also develop a social action project to deal with a local issue they’re passionate about, and spend 30 hours putting the project into action in their community. Find out more.
