For over 60 years, The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award – Australia 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 conducts various research projects and engages external expert consultants to explore the Duke of Ed's outcomes and impacts.

It's official, we've made history!

    2022 Australia Survey
  • Social Value Analysis to quantify the impact of the Duke of Ed on young people, adult mentors and society. You can find more information about our social value research
