Duke of Edinburgh Mission Statement

The mission of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Hillary  Award Programme in New Zealand is to have young people, regardless of cultural, ethnic and socio-economic background, participating in an exciting, flexible and individually tailored programme, to build skills, identity and self-esteem.

It’s a very exciting journey to embark upon and we’re excited that we can be a part of it.


Bronze, Silver and Gold

Outdoor Education New Zealand Ltd is a full award unit provider for Canterbury and Dunedin. This has been an exciting move for us and we welcome the first, of what we hope to be many young people embarking on their journey.

For schools and groups, we can run training weekends, practice journeys and qualifying journeys for participants undertaking their Bronze, Silver or Gold Award.

As assessors we can support and sign off on the Adventurous journeys participants undertake through the Duke of Edinburgh Award programme. We work with schools and other private groups to ensure the participants are met with many supportive providers and qualified, experienced instructors to deliver their training, practice journeys and qualifying journeys.

We strongly believe in the benefits of going through the Duke of Edinburgh Award Programme and encourage participants through our training weekends to take on this incredible challenge of designing their own adventurous journey.

We have now scheduled Duke of Edinburgh Award training and adventurous journeys on our course calendar, click here to find out more.
