We are saddened to hear of the passing of the Duke of Edinburgh, who founded the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.

Gaisce – The President’s Award has enjoyed a valued and collaborative partnership with the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award since our inception in 1985, 35 years ago.

Gaisce – The President’s Award and The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award work in partnership through the Joint Award Initiative (JAI) to offer Award participants in Northern Ireland a choice of recognition for their achievements.

Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.
