Deliver the Award

The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award supports the next generation to find their purpose, passion and place in the world.

As they set out to find their purpose, passion and place in the world, today’s young people face a broad range of challenges. They are bombarded by information, expectation and uncertainty. They are growing up with complexities and challenges unseen by the previous generations. If they are to succeed, they need the skills, resilience and understanding to help them take on whatever life may throw their way. The responsibility lies with all of us to inspire young people to unlock their potential, and ensure they are better equipped with the soft – or universal – skills needed to strive.

The Award operates in more than 130 countries and territories, helping to inspire millions of young people. And it’s not limited by the boundaries of one programme or place. 

Who can Operate the Award

Any educational institution in Bangladesh can apply for registration to run the Award in its premises. Currently, this opportunity is available across Bangladesh.

There are numerous benefits the Award has been offering to young people. By delivering the Award your organisation will:

·        Help to develop the lives of young people and their communities;

·       Become part of an international network of Award Operators in over 130 countries and territories worldwide; and Provide professional development opportunities for your staff.

Why should you operate the Award


The aim of education is to develop the human faculty. The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award programme speeds up this development. It helps the participants to transform themselves into holistically developed individual human being. Running the Award brings benefits not only for the participants but also for the institution itself.
