Duke of Edinburgh Award
St Mary's College students follow the Duke of Edinburgh Award programme.
Taking part in the Duke of Edinburgh Awards programme (DofE) is a life-changing experience for many students. A fun time with friends. An opportunity to discover new interests and talents. A tool to develop essential skills for life and work. A recognised mark of achievement; respected by employers.
The DofE is many things to many people, supporting generations to successfully navigate adult life.
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.
