We manage the Duke of Edinburgh's Award programme for West Lothian Council and work in partnership with secondary schools and local voluntary organisations to provide opportunities for young people to participate in the Duke of Edinburgh's Awards Scheme.

CLD Youth Services Duke of Edinburgh's Awards Scheme

The Duke of Edinburgh's Award (DofE) is a flexible programme that helps to develop young people for life and work, the numbers speak for themselves: 93% of participants feel that DofE has helped them to work in a team and 84% feel that they have become a more responsible person.

In West Lothian DofE is supported by a dedicated team of school and community volunteers. This approach enables young people to participate in the DofE Award programme through their school or locally run open awards group.  For more information on this please contact our D of E Manager, Gary Sneddon, Senior Community Education Worker on 07917242611 or email gary.sneddon1@westlothian.gov.uk
