DofE stories


Skanska is one of the UK’s leading contractors and is an inclusive and responsible business that is helping to build a better society. Known for major projects, such as the Gherkin and Crossrail, they are building, upgrading and maintaining the country’s infrastructure.

People are at the heart of Skanska’s business which is why they have decided to support The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award as a Silver Partner and are offering the DofE to their young apprentices at both Bronze and Gold Award.  This commitment to their young talent will foster new ways of thinking and build successful and winning teams who are ready to work on challenging projects in the future.

Harvey Francis, said: “The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award has a good track record of helping young people achieve and demonstrate their full potential.  It aligns clearly with our values and our way of working and I’m looking forward to using this to build on our current apprentice and trainee programme.”
