Cathedral College Wangaratta is excited to offer The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award. The Duke of Ed Award is the world’s leading youth achievement program for young people between the ages of 14 and 25. Through participation in the Award, young people are empowered with the skills and opportunities to realise their full potential and go beyond academic success.

The Duke of Ed Award can be achieved at three different levels: Bronze, Silver and Gold. There are four award sections, each with a set length of time depending on the award level. Participants choose activities and set goals within each of the four award sections:

Physical Recreation (a sport or exercise)
Service (unpaid voluntary work)
Skill (non-physical ability)
Adventurous Journeys (a practice journey and a qualifying journey)

Who can participate in the Duke of Ed Award?

The Duke of Ed Award is being offered as an extra-curricular activity to students in Year Eight and above.

What role do parents play?

Parents play a vital role by providing support and encouragement as your child works towards their goals. The activities are completed outside of class time, so some parental guidance may be required to help your child achieve the award.

How much does it cost?

The cost for each participant starting their Duke of Ed Award at Cathedral College Wangaratta is $179, which includes administrative costs and registration, Online Record Book access, insurance cover and an award-level badge and certificate upon completion.
