Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme (Coordinated by Mr S. Mitchel)
The opportunity to take part in the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is a fundamental part of the learning journey here at Christ the King.
Achieving an Award will give you skills, confidence and an edge over others when you apply for college, university or a job. Beyond your academic achievements, universities want to see evidence of so called ‘soft skills’ that you have developed through extra-curricular activities, such as communication, commitment, leadership and teamwork. Your Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is a fantastic way to demonstrate and evidence these skills in practice.
You’ll also make a difference to other people’s lives and your community, be fitter and healthier, make new friends and have memories to last you a lifetime.
The award encourages the following disciplines, which help to shape you as students, citizens and future professionals;
Working as part of a team
Improving problem-solving skills
Developing leadership skills
Acquisition of new hobbies and skills
Adopting a healthy lifestyle
Giving time to the service of others.
Whilst Mr Mitchel will oversee the school based elements of the Award, we have enlisted the services the Youth and Community Partnership (YCP) (www.the-ycp.co.uk) as our external provider to deliver the expedition elements of the awards.
