Duke of Edinburgh Awards

Chiswick, West London

We are very proud to support the Duke of Edinburgh Awards Programme and have activities on offer, run in-house at the Wellness Centre that can be used towards the scheme, supporting young people in completing their award.

Skills

We offer a Duke of Edinburgh First Aid Programme for Teenagers, progressing over a three-month period. During the course you will learn valuable life skills, equating to a 12-hour programme, which can be used to complete your skills section of the award.

If you have a group of friends wanting to complete the skills section together, we offer various private group courses, as well as group discounts, so please send us a message and we can sort this out for you!

Alternatively, if you are an individual wanting to complete your skills section with us, we can enrol you onto one of our already running Duke of Edinburgh Courses. Please send us an email for upcoming dates.

The Duke of Edinburgh Fist Aid courses cover a full First Aid syllabus over the 12-hour programme, helping young people to feel confident in dealing with everyday situations and emergencies. The course includes:

  • CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation)
  • Anaphylaxis/asthma
  • Choking
  • Head injuries
  • Recovery position
  • Introduction to AED (Automated External Defibrillation)
    … And much more

Our programme is run by our fully qualified First Aid Instructor, who previously has taught in schools and has many years’ experience working with young people.

Physical

We are also proud to support the physical section of the awards programme, offering a weekly physical Yoga class, or Teen Fit class, which can be used to complete this section of the award.

If there is a group of you wanting to complete the physical section together, our qualified instructors can offer private group sessions to young people over a 3 or 6-month period.
