The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award 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 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/Territory Award Operating Authority.
PLEASE NOTE: The Handbook has been updated (October 2013). Please ensure you download and familiarise yourself with the 2013 edition of the Handbook. There have been no major policy changes
