In 2016-17 the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award was introduced at IES Breckland. Students participated in 12 essential skill sessions before their practical and real expedition. These sessions included first aid, map reading, cooking, leadership, planning for an expedition and many more. Students’ carried out their practice expedition at 2 Mile Bottom, Thetford and their real expedition at Yarwell. With its success, we look forward to reintroducing it again.
