We are working with The President’s Award for Youth Empowerment (TPA) to offer our schools new ways to broaden their curriculum. TPA delivers The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award in South Africa, and both our organisations believe that learning should not be confined to the classroom, but should also take place in the school environment and wider community.
Many of our schools tell us that they want to provide students with an opportunity to develop soft skills such as leadership, teamwork and confidence. By offering the Award as non-formal education alongside the academic Cambridge programmes they are able to provide students with a holistic education. Cambridge International Schools will receive an exclusive package of benefits to support them as they deliver the Award.
We are working together to develop confident, responsible, reflective, innovative and engaged learners and create opportunities for young people to develop skills, get physically active, give service to their local community and experience adventure.
The President’s Award creates opportunities for young people to develop character, discover their purpose and determine their future to contribute towards building a brighter future for the nation. The Award provides a framework for non-formal education and has set guiding principles with proven outcomes for participants who complete it.
The Award is comprised of three levels and four sections:
Participants complete all four sections at each level to achieve their Award. At Gold level, participants also complete a Residential project.
We trialled the joint benefits of the partnership in three countries - Egypt, Indonesia and Spain and have now extended the programme to our community of schools in other countries, including South Africa.
Schools that are referred by Cambridge International will receive an exclusive package of benefits which includes:
