The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award
Hundreds of thousands of dedicated people help to deliver the Award around the world, every day.
Non-formal education focuses on developing the wider ‘soft’ or life-skills which help young people ensure they are ready for the world. When paired with a formal education, the Award provides a fantastic foundation for a young person to thrive.
Any organisation that works directly with young people can deliver the Award: schools, prisons, Scout and Guide groups, business or youth clubs, as well as by governments. It offers organisations a way of gaining accreditation for development activities with young people.
