Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme

We work in conjunction with the 15th Glasgow Scout Group to offer all levels of the Duke of Edinburgh (DofE) Award Scheme.  As a trained outdoor activity group, we are able to run our own expeditions, thereby drastically reducing the cost when compared to local authority or private schools.
