Duke of Edinburgh’s awards

girls silver assessed 2014

We run Duke of Edinburgh’s awards for young people aged 14+yrs!

This is a photo of our last Silver group at the end of their Assessed expedition, enjoying a much-needed drink and cake on the Malverns!

DofE is great for young people to make new friends, learn new skills and develop independence skills and confidence. It’s also great for CVs and to prove to employers that you have the determination and motivation to put in extra effort and see something through to the end!

The award is made up of 4 parts: Volunteering, Skills, Physical & Expedition, and young people can enter the award at bronze, silver or gold. We deliver both bronze and silver awards from our centre on Monday evenings.

We run a group on Monday evenings 7.30-8.30pm and always welcome new members! You can stay on at youth club until 9.30pm to work towards your DofE sections or just to chill out and get to know others whilst enjoying youth centre activities.

It’s £1 each week and there is also a small enrolment fee to pay to join the Award (currently £20) and a fee to paid for the whole of the expedition section (currently £60). We provide you with all the support and guidance to make sure you succeed!

A new group has started for 2017 and we’re looking for bronze and silver participants! Come and see us or get in touch to find out more!

    Raven Fencing Club have previously done awards for DoE participants and wonder whether any of your young people would like to consider fencing as part of their programme. We operate at Patchway Community Centre on Friday nights, 7:30-9:30pm. Cost for juniors is £4.00 per night and £5.00 for senior with all equipment and kit available for their use.
