- provide Continuing Professional Development (CPD) for your staff;
- Complement existing extra-curricular activities and receive recognition for them;
- Give young people the opportunity to participate in the world’s leading youth achievement award.

“The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award is the only truly global mark of recognition that I know about in the field of extracurricular activity. As an employer, I want to see that people coming to work for us have more to offer than their academic qualifications. The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award is a great example of a differentiator I would look for when judging the suitability of a young person to join our company.” Phil Smith, CEO, Cisco UK & Ireland
