Duke of Edinburgh

The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award equips young people for life. It is the world’s leading youth

achievement award. In 2015 more than 1.1 million young people around the world took part in the

Award in over 140 countries and territories. Since the Award’s launch 60 years ago, it has inspired

millions of young people to transform their lives. By creating opportunities for young people to develop

skills, get physically active, give service and experience adventure, the Award can play a critical role in

their development outside the classroom. It also allows their achievement to be consistently recognised

worldwide, giving young people unique international accreditation of their experiences. The Duke of

Edinburgh’s International Award is transforming individuals, communities and societies around the

world. Young people who do the Award become more confident and resilient, and develop skills in areas

such as communication, problem solving and leadership. This in turn impacts on their communities, who

see improvements in areas including employability, health and wellbeing, and educational attainment.

There are three award levels:

Bronze – students aged 14+ years

Silver – students aged 15+ years

Gold – students aged 16+ years

Each level is a stand-alone qualification and the achievement of all three levels is the equivalent of an A-level with an A.

The award is run by a dedicated team of teachers:


Mrs Laoura Petrou – Award Coordinator, Adventurous Journey Assessor

Mr Fanis Georgiou – Adventurous Journey Supervisor

Ms Angela Ioannou – Award Leader

Mrs Rea Petsa – Award Leader

Mrs Penny Penn – Award Leader
