Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme

The Duke of Edinburgh Awards Scheme

During their two academic years as students of the Newlands Junior College, all NJC students will undertake the Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award programme.

Bronze  has 4 sections, Volunteering, Physical, Skills and Expedition. Students would need to be at least 14 years old to start a Bronze programme and must undertake a minimum of 3 months activity for each of the Volunteering, Physical and Skills sections, and plan, train for and do a 2 day (1 night) Expedition.

They will also be required to spend an extra three months on one of the Volunteering, Physical or Skills sections. Students choose from one of the three areas and the table below shows what they will need to do:

The SkillForce Scotland trainer will also provide the leadership and guidance required to help all NJC students achieve their maximum potential within the DofE programme.
