The Bronze Award is open to young people aged between 14 and 25. Here at Breconshire we usually start with young people in year 10. It will take a minimum of 6 months to complete.
The Silver Award is open to young people aged between 15 and 25. It will take new participants a minimum of 12 months to complete but those who have completed their bronze first can finish in 6 months.
The Gold Award is very prestigious. It is open to young people aged between 16 and 25. It will take new participants a minimum of 18 months to complete, but those who have completed their Silver could complete in 12 months.
We are going to quickly begin training and preparing for Silver and Gold participants starting on 2nd February. If you, your child or your friends are interested in direct entry for either the Silver or Gold DofE awards please get in contact with us at email@example.com and let us know. Also if you have completed your Bronze award either with us before or not, you can sign up with us now to get started on your Silver award too.
We've been busy during the lockdowns preparing and re-branding. Our new community interest company name Breconshire Award Scheme Group accurately reflects our aim to deliver DofE awards to young people in and around the Breconshire area. There are some old and new faces in our team but we are still as dedicated as ever and are now looking to restart our operations. Keep an eye out for news regarding signing up for bronze awards towards Autumn 2022.
Breconshire Award Scheme Group is a Community Interest Company which is based in Brecon. We believe that the Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme should be open to everyone. Therefore we will welcome anyone who wants to register at our centre to do their award. We provide support and help where we can, especially to those who may find doing their Award financially challenging.
All of our leaders are volunteers and give up their time freely to support the young people with their expeditions and other sections of the award. We therefore keep our costs to a minimum and do not make a profit.
