At Winstanley we offer all students the opportunity to sign up to complete the Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award at the start of their first year. If you have completed your Duke of Edinburgh Bronze and Silver Awards then you can complete Gold in just 12 months.

Don't worry however, even if you have only completed bronze or non at all, you can still go straight onto a Gold Award, you just need to perform one section for a minimum of 18 months.

For the Gold Award there are five sections you need to complete to acheive the award. They are:

  • Volunteering (minimum 12 months)
  • Skill
  • Physical
  • Expedition
  • Residential

You need to complete one section for 18 months (or 12 if completed Bronze and Silver) one for 12 months and one for 6. We offer the expedition through college in your first year, and you will need to source your own residential.

More information about the award as a whole can be found on the link below:
