PLAYSCHEME

WHAT IS THE DUKE OF EDINBURGH'S AWARD?

If you are aged between Year 9 and 24 years old you could start working towards your Duke of Edinburgh’s award.
The Youth commission run a mainstream holiday Playscheme provision for primary aged pupils during the Easter, Summer and Christmas school holidays.The main aim is to offer children the opportunity to socialise, learn new skills and have the opportunity to engage in new experiences.

Over the years we have developed key partner relationships which means that children are able to participate with trips to the Dairy, Police and Ambulance Station as well as visits from the Library Service.

WHICH LEVEL IS RIGHT FOR YOU?

There are three levels, Bronze, Silver and Gold with each level demanding more commitment.
You could complete your bronze award in just 6 months!

““The DofE is a way of recognising the extraordinary achievement of young people aged 14 – 25 which is just the age I was being useless. They are doing something fantastic and challenging themselves in every possible way. “
- Joanna Lumley

LIHOU RESIDENTIAL

The Youth Commission runs an annual residential experience in Lihou during the summer months. This is open to all Gold participants and is an opportunity to make new friends, give something back to your community and complete a vital section of your Gold without the expense of having to travel.
