The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award

Noukhada is delighted to announce that it is now an Approved International Trained Activity Provider for The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award.

What is The Award?

The Award equips young people for life and work.  Not all learning happens in the classroom. Young people need experiences outside the classroom to become committed, responsible and fulfilled citizens of the world.  The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award is available to all 14-24 year olds and is the world’s leading youth achievement award. It equips all young people for life regardless of their background, culture, physical ability, skills and interests. Doing the Award is a personal challenge and not a competition against others; it pushes young people to their personal limits and recognises their achievements consistently.  Since its launch 60 years ago, the Award has inspired millions of young people to transform their lives. Through non formal education, the Award can play a critical role in a young person’s personal development and is achievable by any 14-24 year old who wants to take up the challenge.

The Award framework

The Award is comprised of three levels and four sections. Participants complete all four sections at each level in order to achieve their Award. At Gold level, participants also complete a Residential Project.
The Award levels: Bronze: For those over 14 years old; Silver: For those over 15 years old; and Gold: For those over 16 years old.
