To deliver The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award at your school or organisation you will need to register as an Award Centre and nominate at least one Award Leader who will be responsible for coordinating the Award within your Award Centre. It is strongly recommended that you also identify a second person to ensure continuity through any absences. They will be required to complete the Award Leader training outlined in the steps below.

An Award Centre Licence agreement will be issued which needs to be signed and returned by the delegated approving officer (Authorising Contact).

The Award Leader will also need to register their Award Centre on the Online Record Book (ORB). The ORB is the online system used to manage Participant registrations, activity logging and Award sign-off approvals.
