The Royal Life Saving Society UK has now become a National Operating Authority with the Duke of Edinburgh which means that participants can achieve their Physical, Skills, Volunteering and Residential section of their Duke of Edinburgh award with the RLSS UK. Whilst participants have always been able to complete elements of their awards with the charity, participants can now be awarded elements directly by us. Many clubs are completing the process to becoming Duke of Edinburgh centres which means they are authorised by RLSS UK as a National Operating Authority to put participants through the award. We are ready to start piloting with clubs any day now!

The Duke of Edinburgh awards are great awards which develop participants’ persistence, confidence and commitment and as such are significantly managed by the participants; the participants maintain, record and manage their own progress with the co-ordinator over viewing and assessing.
