The Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme

CNS is a direct licensed centre for the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award. 

Students can achieve Bronze, Silver or Gold level.  The students will create and carry out their sections (Volunteering, Physical and Skill) in their own time.  Each activity takes approximately one hour a week.  The time scale is from three to twelve months, depending on the Award level. 

We run eight expeditions over the academic year and there are 24 staff members here at CNS who help with the expeditions.  

The DofE leader is Mr. Phil Lee.
