Duke of Edinburgh's Award

The DofE at Robert Gordon’s is the largest DofE Club in the whole of Scotland. We currently have over 450 pupils participating in Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards between S3 and S6, supported by an amazing network of 20 staff.

All pupils must commit to completing four sections for varying amounts of time depending on the level of the Award. These sections are Volunteering, Skill, Physical and Expedition with Gold Award participants also completing a residential section. Not only does the DofE Award help improve fitness levels, teamwork, self-discipline and the learning of new skills for all participants, they have contributed in the last year to over 5000 hours of volunteering within our local community!
