|Causeway Open Award Centre
The Open Award Centre...
The Centre was started in September 2003 and operates under the Education Authority - North Eastern section.
Throughout the Causeway Coast area a lot of the grammar and secondary schools offer the Duke Of Edinburgh's Award to their pupils. But for some participants this isn't suitable. It may be that the schools programme of activities doesn't suit their particular requirements or is oversubscribed, for others that have left school, the Open Award Centre is simply the only option left.
The Open Award Centre tries to offer a solution for anyone who approaches us. We can now offer "in house" expedition training to Grammar schools, Secondary schools and Further Education Colleges, please contact Jane or Michael for further details.
The unit receives no regular financial support for its activities or courses and relies upon contributions from participants, and occasional grant aid. The "staff" are largely comprised of regular committed volunteers. If you can assist us in any way please do contact us.
Has your school or college been over subscribed preventing you from doing your DofE with them? Contact us and we will work with you and your friends to complete the award.
