The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award
The Duke Of Edinburgh’s Award (DofE) is the world’s leading youth achievement award. Nearly 300,000 young people in the UK, aged 14 to 24, take part each year, achieving a DofE Award and
obtaining transferable skills, improving their wellbeing and having a great time along the way.
There are three levels, Bronze, Silver or Gold DofE Award. The main differences between the levels are the age you can start, the time they take to complete and how challenging they are.There
are four sections to all Award levels – Volunteering, Physical, Skills and Expedition and a fifth, Residential, at Gold Award level. Many young people enjoy the Expedition section, in which
they get an opportunity to stay away from home in a group and experience the outdoors.
Craghoppers is proud to have an exclusive range, designed for those who are taking part in DofE activities. From waterproof jackets to fleeces, we have created technical kit to ensure
participants are comfortable out on the hills. Craghoppers make a donation to the DofE charity for every item purchased. This goes towards enabling more young people from all backgrounds to
achieve a DofE Award.
Craghoppers recently teamed up with 10 students from Manchester Academy, who are working towards their DofE Award, to take part in our latest photo shoot for the campaign. The photo shoot
features the latest DofE clothing range, which is packed full of comfortable yet technical gear.
Craghoppers are also proud to support 40 students from Manchester Academy to complete their DofE award.
