Duke of Edinburgh Accredited Centre
Ysgol Ty Coch is a directly licensed centre of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award. We received our centre licensing in March 2016 presented at St James Palace by Greg Davies.
We are currently delivering, Bronze, Silver & Gold Awards. The Award is achieved by completing a personal programme of activities in four sections (five for Gold.)
Volunteering - helping someone, your community or the environment
Physical - becoming fitter through sport, dance or fitness activities
Skills - developing existing talents or trying something new
Expedition - planning, training for and completing an adventurous journey
Residential (Gold only) - staying and working away from home as part of a team
The length of time spent on each section depends on the level of programme being completed.
Ysgol Ty Coch has two BEL trained expedition leaders, who are also registered DofE assessors with outdoor first aid qualifications.
