60th Anniversary of the DofE Award Scheme

dofeTo mark the 60th Anniversary of the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme the College was invited to a Garden Reception at Buckingham Palace. WQE has been involved in the delivery of the Duke of Edinburgh’s award as a licensed organisation and for many years offered students the opportunity to undertake the challenging and rewarding programme.

This work has been led by Wendy Fleming who herself gained her Gold Award.
