International Award

The International School of Moscow is proud to deliver The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award.

The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award is the world’s leading youth achievement award, bringing together practical experiences and life skills to equip young people for life. 

Since it was founded in 1956 by His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh (husband to Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom), over eight million young people aged 15 to 18 have participated in the Award in over 140 countries and territories. Schools, colleges, universities, employers, social clubs, youth organisations such as the Scouts, Girl Scouts and Girl Guides, young offenders’ institutions, religious organisations, sports clubs and more all run the Award.  

The Award Programme

The Award is voluntary, non-competitive, enjoyable and balanced, and requires effort over time. There are three levels to the Award: 

  • Bronze
  • Silver
  • Gold 

Young people design their own Award programme, set their own goals and record their own progress. They choose a Service, Physical Recreation or Skills activity, go on an Adventurous Journey and, to achieve a Gold Award, take part in a residential project. The only person they compete against is themselves, by challenging their own beliefs about what they can achieve.

Further Information

More information on The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award can be found on the International Award website. You can also connect with the Award on Facebook, Twitter and on YouTube.

For information about the Award in The International School of Moscow, please email our Award Leader Mr Toby Etheridge.
