Going for gold?

Duke of Edinburgh Award

The Duke of Edinburgh Award has arrived at Newcastle University!

Throughout this year all stages of the Duke of Edinburgh Award, bronze, silver and gold will be running. So whether you’ve already done 1 or more stages, you can finish it off. Or if you haven’t done any before, why not make a start.

Duke of Edinburgh is a brilliant experience, if you’re determined, up for a laugh or just want to get outdoors, it’s something for you. It doesn’t take much time to complete and is also great to add to your CV; as it covers such a range of skills. If you achieve gold, you get to go to Buckingham Palace to get awarded it.

So, bring your mates along and email Vicky Wales at vicky.wales@dofe.org to take part now.

An information session will be taking place in the Planning Room (NUSU, Level 1), on Tuesday 19th November 5-7pm.
