New Bridge is very pleased to be running the DofE Award Scheme for a third year after our first group successfully completed their Bronze and Silver levels. We now have new groups across the school and Learning Centre working towards their Bronze and Silver Awards, while members of our original group have nearly completed their Gold Award!

We feel the DofE Scheme gives our young people the opportunity to grow in confidence, to be independent and to develop the skills and attitudes they need for adulthood. A DofE programme is a personal challenge which is tailor-made to suit individual circumstances. The personal and non-competitive nature of the scheme enables participants from different and diverse starting points to be equally proud of achieving their DofE Award based on their own challenge and journey.
