Duke of Edinburgh Award at Upton Hall F C J
The aim of the award is to encourage young people to take greater responsibility for their own lives, to discover new talents and to take positive action in the community. It gives individuals a sense of self-confidence; it involves problem solving and the ability to work as a team. These are all skills that are used in everyday life and valued by employers when recruiting and training staff.
The scheme provides many opportunities for young people to enjoy a wide variety of physical, creative and aesthetic experiences which encourage personal growth and development. Students are encouraged to organise and negotiate their own personal programme of participation and develop qualities such as enterprise, initiative and leadership which are highly regarded in society.
