Key Stage 3 Development
This year the key stage 3 team have decided to introduce The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award. The Award is an award that originated in the UK with the fundamental purpose to drive and support the global growth of the youth of today. We at Samakee have decided to introduce the award as we all know the benefits of this great opportunity to our developing young people. This award now is an internationally recognised award on a global scale.
Samakee will be working as a team and also through our network of Award Operators in the Asia Pacific region as well as Thailand. The award is now available in more than 140 countries and territories, and creating new ways and places for young people to develop and move forward, through the art of innovation and dedication. We at Samakee will be working to increase global awareness of the value of non-formal education. This in turn creates demand for the Award, which is one way that young people’s development outside the classroom can be recognised consistently worldwide.
Since the Awards launch nearly 60 years ago, millions of young people have participated in the Award (Including Samakee Staff), with millions more benefitting from its impact in communities around the world. By creating opportunities for young people to develop skills, get physically active, give service and experience adventure, the Award can play a critical role in their development outside the classroom. It also allows their achievement to be consistently recognised worldwide, giving young people unique international accreditation of their experiences.
It is our ambition that every young person in Key Stage 3 up to the age of 14 will have the opportunity to participate in the Award.
