The Duke of Ed

For over 60 years, The Duke of Edinburgh's Award (Duke of Ed) has run as an international youth development program, challenging individuals between the ages of 14 to 25 to engage with their communities and develop key leadership skills. Founded in the UK in 1956 by Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, it has since expanded to more than 144 nations, including Australia.

The program consists of bronze, silver and gold levels, which vary in age recommendation and duration and participants must complete each of the following four sections:
• Service
• Physical Recreation
• Skills
• Adventurous Journey
At Gold level, participants also complete a residential project.

The long-term benefits of obtaining the Duke of Ed are demonstrated in the program's 'outcome measures', highlighting the program's goals of improving participants' confidence, resilience, leadership skills, creativity and innovation, planning and problem-solving, and communication skills. These soft skills act as key attractors in improving employability.​
