Duke of Edinburgh Award Skills

When choosing a ‘life skill’ to learn when working towards any level Duke of Edinburgh Award, what’s more valuable than learning how to prepare some nutritious and delicious meals?

Students undertake a fortnightly course for 3 months (for Silver and Bronze or 6 months for Gold) which counts towards their Duke of Edinburgh Award skills section.. Each week the students will make a balanced family meal whilst learning some essential skills such as knife handling, food waste management, nutritional knowledge and substituting in recipes.

Often the students will team up with a friend and complete the course together in their own homes or they can do it by themselves. Content for the courses is flexible according to the specific family’s dietary requirements and courses can be booked at a mutually convenient time.
