Bronze Award 2021

Challenge yourself with the Bronze Duke of Edinburgh’s Award

Want to try new things, make a difference and have exciting adventures? Then DofE Bronze is the award for you! It’s open to young people aged 13 and in the academic year they turn 14.

Why should I get involved?

Doing DofE Bronze will give you skills, confidence and an edge over others when you apply for college, university or a job.

You’ll develop communication, leadership and teamwork skills as well making a difference to other people’s lives and your community. And you’ll go on an exciting expedition and make memories to last you a lifetime.

What does it entail?

DofE Bronze is split into four sections:

  • Volunteering section: 3 months
  • Physical section: 3 months
  • Skills section: 3 months
  • Expedition section: 2 days/1 night

You also have to spend an extra three months on one of the Volunteering, Physical or Skills sections. It’s your choice which one and, though you can change your mind later, you should decide which section you want to do for longer at the beginning.

Knowing how long you’re going to do it for will help you to choose your activity and set your goals for each section.

You can find more information on the timescales and the sections as well as lots more information on the DofE website.
