St. David’s aims to give students opportunities outside the classroom to develop skills that will benefit their applications to University and Employment; the Duke of Edinburgh award builds initiative, self-belief, and problem-solving as participants work through challenges.

Fundraising and group activities build teamwork, leadership, and confidence skills, and the programme culminates in an expedition, where you will spend time in the outdoors working through practical application of skills and enjoying time beyond a classroom.

Recognised by employers and Universities for the life- skills gained, students get immense satisfaction finishing this exciting challenge.

St David’s College is a licensed centre providing the Silver and Gold Awards to students as direct entrants or as progression from awards achieved in other centres.

How do I sign up? 

You can sign up for the Duke of Edinburgh Award by contacting Mr Price – during the first term. There is opportunity to sign up at the annual Freshers Fair and opportunities communicated through your student email.
