The Shakespeare Hall in Newhaven and Wave Leisure Trust have confirmed that, following the first successful Duke of Edinburgh (DofE) Bronze Award, a new course will commence on Tuesday the 17th of September.

Completing the DofE Award can be a life-changing adventure for a child. On the way, they will participate in an exciting and challenging programme of activities to help them reach their full potential. They'll learn new skills, help others, have fun, make new friends and gain a great sense of achievement. Employers, colleges and universities really value Duke of Edinburgh's Awards and know what it says about someone who is an Award holder.

For young people, a DofE programme is a real adventure from beginning to end. It doesn't matter who they are or where they're from. They just need to be aged between 14 and 24 and realise there's more to life than sitting on a sofa watching life pass them by.
