Duke of Edinburgh

Baxter College is proud to hold the status of a Duke of Edinburgh Licensed Organisation and has done for many years. Most young people find achieving a Duke of Edinburgh Award is life-changing, have a look and see what we mean below!

Many Baxter students have already achieved various award levels – pushing personal boundaries gaining new skills and enhancing their CVs and university applications. Time to get involved and go the extra mile?

Activities for each DofE section need a time commitment over a set period of time, so they can be fitted in around academic study, hobbies and social lives. Development and regular progress must be shown and all activities must be completed by the participant’s 25th birthday.

Covid 19 Update

Message for the Duke of Edinburgh Award

DofE participants are encouraged to access the Google Classroom group for their award in order to find out how to continue with their individual activities or to change them if they are not able to progress as planned at the moment. I will continue to add information to these groups to keep them up to date, so they should access them regularly. Contact me if they are not able to access the group.

Due to the current Covid 19 restrictions; the uncertainty about when/how schools will restart and the effects on the DofE training, we have had to make some changes to the DofE programme for 2020. 

Please contact me if you have any questions about any of the awards.
