Presenter – Mr Andrew Jaye, Sports Presenter and Silver award holder

Andrew told the Gold Award holders: “The DofE gets you out of your comfort zone. I encourage everyone to step out of their comfort zone as much as possible. It is the best way to experience the world and really find out who you are and who you can be. When an employer hears you are a Gold Award holder, that stands out. I’m still using the skills I learned from the DofE in my career today.”

Brian told the Gold Award holders: “I am here today because I am genuinely in awe of the students, these young people that have achieved their Gold Award. It is a tremendously difficult thing to do.

Queen Anne Room – Northern Ireland

Presenter – Mr William Millard, Presenter and Journalist

William told the Gold Award holders: “A DofE award isn’t just a line on your CV – it’s the children you coached who didn’t listen to you, the hours you spent juggling your activities with schoolwork, the skills you’ve learned and the friends you have made – and no one can take that away from you. Never believe anyone who tells you the world is not worth exploring. Sometimes you just have to have the courage to go forward – even if it means you might fail – you just need to embrace the unknown.”

Picture Gallery – North of England

Presenter – Mr Justin Packshaw, Explorer, Entrepreneur and Gold Award Holder

Justin told the Gold Award holders: “This is a great honour for me as it only seems like a handful of years ago that I was where you are now receiving my award. What you have done is extra-ordinary and we are all very proud of you. You have shown that everything is possible and all you have do is believe in yourself and follow your dreams. Remember to keep striving to be the best that you can be and a guiding light to others. The world is your oyster.”
