The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme is open to anyone aged 14 to 23. No special qualifications are needed – just a willingness to have a go.  The scheme is currently offered at Epworth and Scunthorpe youth sessions, schools and colleges.  Many organisations such as employers and universities take a good view of the award and what it says about the person who has achieved it.

  • Volunteering
  • Skills
  • Physical Recreation
