Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award


Doha British School is proud to deliver the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award.

The Award

The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award is the world’s leading youth achievement award, bringing together practical experiences and life skills to equip young people for life.

Since it was founded in 1956 by The Duke of Edinburgh (husband to Queen Elizabeth II), over eight million young people have participated in the Award in over 140 countries and territories.

Doha British School is proud to offer the Award to students, starting with the Bronze award in Year 10, the Silver award in Year 11 and support for the Gold award during Sixth Form.

What is involved?

The Award is voluntary, non-competitive, enjoyable and balanced, and requires effort over time. There are three levels to the Award: Bronze, Silver and Gold.

Students design their own Award programme, set their own goals and record their own progress. They choose a Service, Physical Recreation, Skills activity, go on an Adventurous Journey and, to achieve a Gold Award, take part in a residential project.

The only person they compete against is themselves, by challenging their own beliefs about what they can achieve.
