THE DUKE OF EDINBURGH'S INTERNATIONAL AWARD
We are proud to deliver the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award at ESK. This extra-curricular programme is offered to Secondary students 14 years or older. This experience allows students to develop essential skills and attributes for work and life. These include: problem-solving, teamwork, resilience and communication. The prestigious award has three progressive levels which lead to the Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards - a recognised mark of achievement for their future career prospects and university applications. At the end of their DofE experience, our students are #worldready, with important skills to help them in their journey ahead.
ESK Students are #WORLDREADY
The DofE requires students to complete the following sections:
Voluntary Service encourages young people to volunteer and give service over a set period of time. Examples include visiting people in need, charity work and sports coaching.
Skills encourage the development of personal interests and creativity skills, such as music, painting, public speaking and gardening.
Physical Recreation challenges students to participate in sport and activity, to help improve their physical and mental health. Examples include football, tennis, running, kayaking and karate.
ESK has DofE certified staff who ensure the students are supported and successful at each section of The Duke of Edinburgh. Students that have completed the Duke of Edinburgh’s Gold Award speak to their growth as individuals, their ability to time manage and set their own goals effectively, and how they made a positive impact on the community.
The first expedition will be held in November 2018 for students completing their Duke of Edinburgh Silver Award. They will be hiking for two days, navigating the beautiful mountains of North Cyprus with a map, carrying everything they need in their bags, and working together as a team.

An adventurous journey awaits...
