First Aureus students to receive The Duke of Edinburgh's Certificate

CertificateWe are thrilled to announce that our first two students, Emma and Ella, have received their The Duke of Edinburgh’s Bronze Certificate of Achievement this week.

Despite the lockdown, Emma and Ella completed their Volunteering, Skills and Physical sections whilst at home, which wasn’t easy, but they took on the challenge and embodied a number of our Aureus values whilst doing so.

Mr Hayden, our DofE Manager, said, “It is great to have two students at Aureus receive their certificates during this challenging time. They have shown great commitment and I am really proud of them.”

The Duke of Edinburgh's Award is a youth awards programme founded in the United Kingdom in 1956 by Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, that has since expanded to 144 nations. Students will take part in four sections of the programme to complete it; Volunteering, Physical, Skills and Expedition. These take place over a minimum period of time, whilst being monitored and assessed by someone with knowledge of the chosen activities.

Taking part in the programme is a great way to build confidence, resilience, skills for work and to create new friendship groups. Colleges, universities and employers regard The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award highly.
