Bronze Award (Year 9)

When can I do my Bronze Duke of Edinburgh's Award?

If you are in Year 9 but are only 13 years old, you may be able to start a Bronze DofE programme if most of your friends are already 14 – check with your DofE Co-ordinator - Mr Hill.

Activities for each DofE section take a minimum of one hour a week over a set period of time, so they can be fitted in around your academic study, hobbies and social life. Development and regular progress must be shown and all activities must be completed before your 25th birthday.

Bronze timescales:

  • Volunteering section: 3 months (1 hour a week, 12 times)
  • Physical section: 3 months (1 hour a week, 12 times)
  • Skills section: 3 months (1 hour a week, 12 times)
  • Expedition section: 2 days and 1 night

You also have to do 3 more months (1 hour a week, 12 times) in one of the Volunteering, Physical or Skills sections.
