The Duke of Edinburgh Program consists of three progressive levels, Bronze, Silver and Gold. Anyone aged 14 to 24 years can participate in the program.
There are four sections to complete at Bronze and Silver levels and five at Gold level. They include:
Any young person can participate in the program, regardless of ability, gender, background or location. Achieving an Award isn’t a competition or about being first. It’s all about setting personal challenges and pushing personal boundaries.
Throughout the program, young people have fun, make friends, improve their self-esteem and build confidence. They gain essential skills and attributes for work and life such as resilience, problem-solving, teamwork, communication and drive, enhancing CVs, university and job applications. Top employers recognise work-ready skills Award holders bring to their business.
NCC is a Duke of Edinburgh licensed organisation that works with young people to complete the program. Through NCC, young people (or their parents/carers) pay a registration fee and are then assisted by leaders who support them through their program, helping them to choose their activities, set their objectives and achieve their Award. You can find out more about the Award by checking out the links below to the official Award site in Queensland and Australia.
