The Junior Duke Award is a life skills Award for primary-aged children aimed at increasing their confidence, resilience and independence
The Junior Duke Award is a life skills Award for primary-aged children aimed at increasing their confidence, resilience and independence. There is a different, progressive level for each school year group and, as well as ten life skills challenges, there are four cultural challenges too.
We provide the booklets, certificates and badges for the pupils as well as giving the teachers an understanding of how best to run the Award in their schools.
Although initially, the Award was made by a primary teacher for the children in her school only, the Inspectors loved it and thought it should be shared with any other interested children. Since the Inspectors' suggestion in 2015, the Award was trialled then a website built and, since then, teachers around the world have been discovering how successfully it works in their schools. Word has spread and it is now in over thirty countries. However, word has not yet reached many African countries so we would like to join AISA so that we can meet teachers from African schools and tell them all about it and see if the Junior Duke Award is something they think would benefit their pupils.
The Association of International Schools in Africa is dedicated to serving its members throughout Africa. Please let us know if you require additional or specific information, resources and or support, and we will endeavour to assist you as soon as possible.
