Barry Fisher, di­rec­tor of Duke of Ed­in­burgh’s Award in Scot­land, said over a quar­ter of UK com­pa­nies look for a DofE Award in ap­pli­ca­tions when they re­cruit, above other recog­ni­tion pro­grammes.

He said: “To­day the DofE is widely recog­nised as hav­ing a long- term pos­i­tive im­pact on young peo­ple’s prospects as they de­velop vi­tal skills for both life and work in­clud­ing con­fi­dence, com­mit­ment, team work­ing and a real sense of com­mu­nity in­volve­ment.

“I con­grat­u­late each and ev­ery one of our award hold­ers in South La­nark­shire on their per­sonal and team achieve­ments but would also like to con­grat­u­late the fan­tas­tic net­work of sup­port that has been de­vel­oped in this area to help them along the way.”

The awards cer­e­mony also in­cluded a stop mo­tion an­i­ma­tion of their ex­pe­di­tion cre­ated by par­tic­i­pants f rom Cam­bus­lang Uni­ver­sal Con­nec­tions and an ex­cerpt from Ver­tigo Theatre’s pro­duc­tion of Beauty and the Beast Jr.
