Duke of Edinburgh's Gold Award

As an apprentice, you’ll have the chance to work towards the Duke of Edinburgh’s Gold Award (DofE). The DofE Award is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity with potentially life-changing consequences and we fully encourage you to accept this challenge!

The DofE Gold Award has five modules that will test you, improve your fitness and teach you new skills. You’ll also get a chance to give back to your community. And we’ll back you the whole way.

Our apprentices tell us achieving the Award has increased their confidence and changed their life.

“The DofE completely changed my life – it increased my confidence so much that I started studying towards a degree at University. It also completely changed my lifestyle. Physical activity is a huge part of my life now, last summer I took part in the Three Peaks Challenge - something I never would have done if it wasn’t for the DofE.”
