Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award

Back
Our international school offers Secondary students the opportunity to prepare for the "Duke of Edinburgh's Award” as a complement to their studies. Although the programme is entirely voluntary it requires commitment, and helps students learn to face challenges and take responsibilities. Furthermore, they are able to fulfill sports and charitable requirements often needed for their final diplomas in Geneva.
  • Description
Our private school's programmes are at three progressive levels which, if successfully completed, lead to a Bronze, Silver or Gold Award.

The Bronze and Silver levels reward personal achievements in four areas: volunteering, physical, skills (social and/or artistic) and expedition (outdoor survival skills).

The Duke of Edinburgh Award is an and group adventure offering candidates new challenges and experiences, the possibility of discovering new and unexpected talents and skills and finally, the chance to meet others with similar interests.

Students can complete Bronze and Silver level awards at the same time as they continue their studies at our international school. While working towards the Bronze medal, candidates are accompanied by trained staff through each stage of the programme. Trips are organized so they can develop skills in planning and completing outdoor expeditions. The Silver award requires candidates to organize and chose the location of their own expedition with assistance from IIL’s trained staff.

Successfully completing the Duke of Edinburgh awards gives students a definite advantage as it is greatly valued by university admissions services and future employers. UCAS, the British Universities and Colleges Admissions Service, specifically requests this type of information as part of the admissions procedure.

The Duke of Edinburgh International Award leaders at our international school have followed specific training to ensure the success of the programme. Information evenings are organised to discuss the programme fully with parents and students who are interested in preparing for the awards. The minimum age is set at 14 by the Duke of Edinburgh's International Award foundation.
