Duke of Edinburgh Award

The Isle of Man College offers the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award ("DofE") through an exciting and challenging range of activities, skills and expeditions.

The DofE is a voluntary, non-competitive programme of activities for anyone aged 14-24.

Doing the DofE gives young people the opportunity to experience new activities or develop existing skills.  It is also a great way to enhance CV and career prospects.

There are three progressive levels of programmes which when successfully completed lead to a Bronze, Silver or Gold Award. 


Students will normally undertake their Silver and Gold Awards at the College with students able to start on their Silver Award even if they have not been involved with the DofE before.

However, where students would like to begin with the Bronze Award at the College, this will still be possible.  Students will be able to create their own DofE programme by choosing a volunteering, physical and skills activity, going on an expedition and, for their Gold only, taking part in a residential activity.

The College values the enrichment that DofE provides young people and provides financial support to the award to ensure that is accessible by all learners.

To find out more about the award please call Kate Bergquist on 01624 648305 or email kate.bergquist@manx.net.
