Six Barton Peveril Sixth Form College students have successfully accomplished their Gold Award and were awarded at Buckingham Palace Garden on Friday 19th May.
The Duke of Edinburgh (DofE) is an organisation participated by young people aged 14 – 24 to explore new challenges, discover their confidence and develop new skills. Students complete their awards at three levels: Bronze, Silver and Gold. Once students have achieved all levels they are then commended for their dedication and drive.
Barton Peveril provides the Duke of Edinburgh Award as a Q-XTRA. The Q-XTRA programme at the College encourages students to enhance their experience that contributes to their health, the community and develop employability. The College supports the 3 awards, Bronze, Silver and Gold and provides four sections: Volunteering, Physical, Skills and the Expedition.
Each section varies in length and commitment depending on the award chosen. This is an opportunity for students to meet new people, design their own programme of activities as well as get to know themselves.
The students who have been recognised and awarded on their achievements:
|Louis Cox||Molly Barber|
|Emily Mansbridge||Ben French|
|Lydia Cowey||Cai Munday|
Students will have the opportunity to pursue DofE after achieving their award by taking part in the DofE Challenge or Adventure to raise money or consider volunteering as a leader to support other your people, who are also going through their DofE Award.
