Duke of Edinburgh

CIT - Community Inclusive Trust. Where learning comes first

CIT Schools are directly licensed centres for
Duke of Edinburgh Awards

The DofE Awards are here to empower young people; to support them as they learn new skills, overcome obstacles, and build confidence and resilience.

For the hundreds of thousands of young people who take part each year, the benefits of achieving a DofE Award at any level are endless. DofE is about helping you along the path to a productive and prosperous future. As many of our participants say, it鶹Ӱ life-changing.

Achieving an Award will give you skills, confidence and an edge over others when you apply for college, university or a job.
