The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award equips young people for life. It is the world’s leading youth achievement award. Since the Award’s launch 60 years ago, it has inspired millions of young people to transform their lives.

By creating opportunities for young people to develop skills, get physically active, give service and experience adventure, the Award can play a critical role in their development outside the classroom. It also allows their achievement to be consistently recognised worldwide, giving young people unique international accreditation of their experiences.

The DofE, as it is affectionately known, complements the Compass ethos perfectly; not only does it dovetail perfectly with the IB Diploma requirement for CAS (Creativity, Activity and Service), it helps develop important life skills in it’s participants lower down the school that prepare them for life. Leadership, teamwork, resilience, self-confidence, problem-solving, time management and communication are just a few of these life skills that are transferable to almost any future career.  In addition, universities and employers recognise the characteristics that all Award holders have which help them stand out from the crowd.

Compass International School Doha only introduced the Award in 2015 but in the few years it has been running, it has gone from strength to strength. Last year, 31 students received their Bronze Award and 11 received their Silver Award. 

In June 2018, 23 students and three members of staff travelled to Nepal for the Silver Adventurous Journey. 

In June 2019, students took part our first ever Gold Adventurous Journey to Dartmoor in the UK.

The DofE allows participants to experience adventure both within Qatar and overseas. 

Students participating in the Award are well placed to develop into the student leaders of tomorrow and the industry leaders of the future.  Skills honed in the progression from Bronze to Gold will prove invaluable no matter what direction life takes them.
