At Cornwallis Academy students aged 14+ have the opportunity to take part in the Duke of Edinburgh's (DofE) Awards programme.
What is the DofE?
A DofE programme is a real adventure from beginning to end and everyone can take part. There are three levels to the programme, which when completed, lead to a Bronze, Silver or Gold Duke of Edinburgh's Award. Awards are achieved by completing a personal programme of activities in four sections (five if you're going for Gold):
- Residential (Gold only)
- Every section gives you adventure, fun and something different
- New experiences
- Discover talents you never knew you had
- Challenge yourself
- Make new friends and have memories that will last a lifetime
- Improve confidence
- Develop new skills
- Gain an award recognised by employers, colleges and universities
- Make a difference to other people's lives and your community
- Be fitter and healthier
How to get involved with the DofE at Cornwallis...
If you're interested in doing your DofE Award at Cornwallis then please see the DofE Leader, Mr Wilkinson (in the MFL department), or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org . If you decide to do your DofE you'll need to pay a small participation fee. There will also be some additional costs which will contribute to the training and assessment of your expedition. Once you've paid this fee you'll receive a welcome pack, which will give you all the information you need to get started!
