COVID-19 Impact

We understand that Duke of Ed participants may be impacted by COVID-19.  Given this, the Queensland Award Operating Authority (AOA) would like to provide some guidance for participants to support you during this time.
There are many ways in which we can encourage participants to continue their activities for the Skills, Voluntary Service and Physical Recreation sections of the Award as well as planning for their Adventurous Journey from their own homes, to ensure they can keep their Award progress on track. The National Award Operator has developed a document which contains information for Award Leaders, Assessors, parents and participants that will support them with the Award during this time.  You can access the document from the following link :

Below there are TWO documents that may assist you with continuing with the Award. The first is some FAQ based on the current situation and the second gives you some ideas of things you CAN do in each section. Please note that if you need to change your activity please check in with Mr Hobson FIRST. Do not assume that it will be an approved activity. If you have questions then email Mr Hobson.
