Morning Presentation

Presenter – Jon Snow, ITN News Presenter

“The DofE is about achievement – setting yourself a target and surpassing it. I would not be doing my job were it not for the seeds sown doing my DofE because it took me out my comfort zone.”

“You’ve achieved something very few people do. You’ve got a DofE Gold award and you should be proud of yourselves. When you apply for your first job, the fact you have a DofE Gold Award on your CV matters and means something. It gives you a competitive advantage over other peers applying for the same role.”

Presenter- Debbie Beadle, Head of Youth Training, ECPAT

“The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is a wonderful opportunity. We are often held back by society for fear of failure but I would encourage young people to take risks and challenges, and achieving a Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is a great example of doing something out of the ordinary. Once you set your mind to something, you can achieve it.”

Presenter- Wyn Davies, Singer, Only Men Aloud

“Mae pobl ifanc yn cael llawer o sylw negyddol yn y wasg, ac nid oes digon o sylw’n cael ei roi i’r pethau cadarnhaol, felly mae’n wych gallu dathlu cyrhaeddiad arbennig iawn gan y bobl ifanc hyn. Hanfod bywyd yw herio eich hunan i fod y gorau y gallwch fod. Nid yw hynny’n digwydd ar ei ben ei hun – mae gofyn gweithio’n galed ac mae’n rhaid bod yn ymroddedig. Drwy ennill Gwobr Aur Dug Caeredin, dangosodd y bobl ifanc hyn bod unrhyw beth yn bosibl os ceisiwch eich gorau. Nid oes cyfyngiad ar beth allwch ei gyflawni!”

“Young people have a lot of negative press and not enough focus on the positives, so it’s fantastic to be able to celebrate a very special achievement by these young people. Life is about challenging yourself to be the best that you can be. It doesn’t just happen, it takes hard work and you need to commit to it. What these young people have demonstrated by achieving a Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Award proves that you can achieve anything if you put your mind to it. The sky’s the limit!”
