The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award

Swan View Senior High School is proud to offer The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award to our students. The Award is an internationally recognised program that acknowledges the diverse activities and skills which participants are committed to.

The Award is a leading youth development program, empowering all young Australians between age 14 to 24 to explore their full potential regardless of their location or circumstance. Through the Award students will develop a skill, improve their overall health, and make a positive impact in their community.

Although the Award means different things to different people, one big advantage is that it is immediately recognisable and highly regarded by companies, educational institutions, and many other organisations around the world. The ‘Duke of Ed’ award demonstrates a well-rounded and committed individual who is diligent, confident, and reliable, all traits that can be difficult to project onto a Curriculum Vitae. Most of all, the Award is designed to be fun and fulfilling and Award Centre is keen to ensure this is the case.
