The Duke of Edinburgh's Award is a great opportunity for young people to learn or develop skills and make new friends and can be very beneficial in their futures in many ways. When applying for jobs or applying for university being able to show that you are actively working towards or have completed your DofE at any level is sought after and will be very desirable in the eyes of an employer or recruiter.
