Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme

Since September 2014, Dunclug College  added to its extensive range of extra-curricular activities with the  introduction of the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme. The Duke of Edinburgh Award is the world ‘s leading achievement award for young people. It aims to provide a balanced range of activities which will enable young people to achieve their potential in an environment of social interaction and teamwork.


Our students are currently working towards their Gold, Silver and Bronze Awards. To gain this award the young people have to complete four different elements., volunteering, physical, skills and an expedition. To achieve the volunteering section young people have to undertake a service to the community or an individuals. Many of our young people have been volunteering with their local youth club, GB,BB,Scout troop or charity shop. The physical section requires young people to improve in an area of sport, dance or fitness. This has enabled many of our young people to take up a new sport or improve their skills in a current one. The skills element  has allowed our young people to develop a new skill and we have noticed a rise in the number of budding cooks and paramedics we have around school.


The most challenging element of the programme is considered to be the expedition because of the range of skills required to manage a successful expedition. With the assistance Mrs Moore our students have been learning to erect a tent, cook outdoors, map read and perform basic first aid.
