The Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award is the highest and most challenging out of the three awards.

As well as students participating in the volunteering, physical and skill sections for a longer duration, students are also required to undertake a residential experience.

The Expedition also steps up a level; four days and three nights with a minimum of eight hours journeying and exploring each day. At Plymouth College we reflect this greater level of commitment by opening the expeditions up to the student’s imagination, in the past students have been to the Lake District and North Wales walking and the Netherlands cycling 

As we are our own Duke of Edinburgh licenced centre this allows us to be flexible and meet the needs of individual students. 

We believe that students get the most out of the Duke of Edinburgh Award by fully engaging in the process and selecting the different sections themselves. We support, encourage and give guidance but at the end of the day it is the students who make the award their own.
