Duke of Edinburgh’s Award
The Military Preparation School has now implemented the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award into its curriculum as a provision for learners to succeed and gain a highly acclaimed qualification. Using the outdoor and military experience from our instructors we are able to deliver high level DofE provision and support to schools.
Since its creation in 1956 by HRH The Duke of Edinburgh KG KT, the DofE has gone from strength to strength. Guided by the same set of principles and by young people themselves, it allows for numerous developments in skill set and personal attributes.
“The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award has helped countless young people on their sometimes difficult path to adulthood.” HRH The Duke of Edinburgh KG KT
