The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Coordinator Handbook is designed to help you run The Duke of Ed effectively as an adult volunteer.
Ensuring The Duke of Ed is run competently and safely is critical which is why this Handbook is so very important. We urge all of our adult volunteers (Coordinators and Assessors) to read the Handbook thoroughly and continually refer to the conditions as set out in this Handbook.
The Handbook covers all of the minimum requirements of The Duke of Ed and offers a framework for you to successfully guide your Participants through their individual Awards and is a great tool to use as a Coordinator or an Assessor.
Please refer any questions you may have to your State or Territory Office.
PLEASE NOTE: The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award in Australia has updated the Coordinator Handbook. Please ensure you download and familiarise yourself with the 2012 edition of the Handbook as well as the 2012 Handbook Summary Document listed below. The summary document details the key policy amendments in the Handbook and should be read carefully.
