Leaving your Award Operator before finishing the Award

If you leave your school before you have completed all activities for your Award, you can still finish it. Even if you graduate from school, you can continue with your Duke exactly where you are.

Your previous teachers may be willing to continue to mentor you until you have achieved your Award. Otherwise, our National Association will take care of you, you can then continue through Duke Direct.

And if you move to another country, the chances are high that you can continue your Award there, too. Contact the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award Foundation to see where the nearest Award Operator is located.
