Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme 

The Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme is an internationally recognised programme for young people which builds self confidence, problem solving and resilience. The scheme is hugely popular with students at Kirkbie Kendal School who complete their Bronze Award in Year 10 and Gold Award in Year 12. More information about the award can be found here –  https://www.dofe.org/ 

EDofE is the online system used to administer the Award. Once students sign up for the Award scheme with the school they will receive a username and password and are expected to record what they are doing for each section and to upload their assessor reports.  

Please contact cstephens@kksa.co.uk if you have questions about the award scheme in school.
