The Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme was founded by the Duke of Edinburgh in 1956. The D of E Award helps to develop young people for life and work. The award requires young people to undertake volunteering, physical development, teamwork, practical and social skills ……. And many more core foundation skills that are invaluable in adulthood.
