The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award
You do not have to start at the Bronze level. If you are over 15 you can join directly at the Silver level or if you are over 16, directly at Gold. You will complete silver in 6 months if you have Bronze and may take one year for Gold if you are a silver holder.
