For over 60 years, the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award has been empowering young people to develop important life skills such as resilience, adaptability, creativity, problem solving, decision-making and communication.
These skills can support a person’s education, future employment, connections within the community, and mental health and wellbeing.
The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award runs various research projects and engages external expert consultants to explore the Award’s outcomes and impacts.
Our two key research initiatives are as follows:
- Participant Satisfaction Surveys to understand the Award experience of young people and adult mentors
- Social Value Analysis to quantify the impact of the Award on young people, adult mentors and society. You can find more information about our social value research here (link to PWC report)
