Go for Gold as a Trainee or College/University Student

Even in training or at college or university, it’s not just about school, lectures, assignments and exams. It’s also about personal growth, making friends, trying new things, being active and healthy, and taking responsibility for others.

Over a period of 18 months, you will gain experience, build confidence and self-esteem, develop resilience, perseverance and special skills through your own chosen activities, while having an interesting and fun time together with like-minded people.

Employers highly value participation in the Duke, so your Award may open doors for you. Many of the skills you will gain can be used in your education or training as well as for your personal and social development.

If you are unable to find an Award Operator, you can participate in the Duke on your own through Duke Direct and receive support directly from the National Association.
