What is the Duke of Ed?

We aim to provide ALL young Australians with the opportunity to uncover their purpose, passion and place in the world to become #WORLDREADY.

The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award (the Duke of Ed) is the global leader in the organising and accrediting of non-formal education through its flagship ‘Duke of Ed Framework’. For over 60 years, this Framework has been used by education providers and community organisations to accredit the non-formal learning outcomes and achievements of young people.
