HRH The Earl of Wessex visit Uplands School
HRH The Earl of Wessex visited Uplands School to see first-hand the difference The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (DofE) makes to young people and communities in the South West.
The Charity is celebrating its Diamond Anniversary this year, having helped to transform the lives of millions of young people in the UK and across the globe since it was founded in 1956.
Undertaking a DofE Award gives 14 to 24 year olds a unique opportunity to grow as young adults, gaining valuable life experience while developing essential employability skills. Setting their own challenges and learning practical skills helps to prepare each individual for the world of work.
As a Trustee and a Gold Award holder, HRH The Earl of Wessex has championed the DofE for many years. As part of the Diamond Anniversary, The Earl of Wessex is travelling around the UK to help celebrate the hard work of DofE volunteers and the successes of DofE participants.
