The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award at Qatar International School

The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award is available to all 14-24 year olds and is the world’s leading youth achievement award. It equips young people for life regardless of their background, culture, physical ability, skills and interests. Doing the Award is a personal challenge and not a competition against others; it pushes young people to their personal limits and recognises their achievements.

Since its launch over 60 years ago, the Award has inspired millions of young people to transform their lives. Through non formal education, the Award can play a critical role in a young person’s personal development and is achievable by any 14-24 year old who wants to take up the challenge.

At QIS we offer students the opportunity to complete their Bronze and Silver Award through expeditions in Qatar and to the UAE. Students are expected to attend weekly sessions to help them develop their skills for these expeditions.
