Welcome to Canterbury Gold Duke of Edinburgh

Canterbury Gold was established in 2007 specialising in providing the Duke of Edinburgh’s (DofE) Gold Award in a virtual environment. This way of managing and supporting an Award group has proved highly successful and very popular amongst our members.

Membership is open to any young person aged between 16 and 23 years. You don’t need any previous Award experience (i.e. Bronze or Silver) to join our group and likewise you can transfer to us if you have already started your Gold Award with another Award Group.

We currently have over 200 members with this figure rising throughout the year. We have no registration deadlines; you can join us at anytime and have no cap on membership.

To register your interest simply look at our registration page for all the information you need.

Please take a look at the rest of our website to get more information about Canterbury Gold and the DofE Gold Award.


  • Fancy an adventure?

    We currently offer two activities that have been successfully operating for many years. The first is a dual activity trip to Southern Africa; the second is an Expedition to the Cevennes Region of the Massif Central in France. A summary of these activities can be found here.


  • The gold award

    The Gold Level Award is the ultimate DofE challenge; achievement is widely valued by employers and educational establishments alike. It makes a significant difference on your CV or UCAS application and gives you something interesting to talk about when you go for an interview.
