The concept of the IAYP is simple – anyone aged between 14 and 25 can do a programme at one of three progressive levels which, when IAYP successfully completed, lead to a Bronze, Silver or Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.There are four sections at Bronze and Silver level and five at Gold.With assistance from adult Leaders, participants select and set objectives in each of the following areas:


  • Volunteering : undertaking service to individuals or the community.
  • Physical : improving in an area of sport, dance or fitness activities.
  • Skills : developing practical and social skills and personal interests.
  • Expedition : planning, training for and completion of an adventurous journey in the UK or abroad.For bronze this is a weekend away doing roughly 15 km a day, based on a preplanned route.
  • At Gold level, participants must do an additional fifth Residential section, which involves staying and working away from home doing a shared activity.
