Duke of Edinburgh and Ten Tors Programmes are Up and Running
Preparations and early training for this year’s Duke of Edinburgh and Ten Tors activities will be underway soon and the College is on the lookout for more students ready to take up the challenge.
Please note: if you are viewing this page on a mobile phone, you may need to view in Landscape in order to view all of the content.
Students over the age of 14 who are able to complete the challenge and keen to follow in the footsteps of our successful participants last year are invited to join us for an initial meeting or speak with organisers and find out more.
The Duke of Edinburgh's Award is a Voluntary, Non-Competitive and Flexible programme of cultural and adventurous activities for all young people aged between 14 and 25 years old, whatever their background or ability.
The Ten Tors Challenge is attempted by 2,400 teenagers in 400 teams of six. The teams navigate routes of 35, 45 or 55 miles (depending on age) over the Northern half of Dartmoor, visiting ten nominated tors / check points in under two days.
Please Note: Teams must be self-sufficient, carrying all that they need to complete their route and camp out overnight safely.
Students from Year 9 upwards are eligible to walk
Training at Ivybridge Community College starts after October Half Term and requires Commitment, Determination and the Ability to Work in a Team.
