BMet College

HRH The Earl of Wessex visited Birmingham Metropolitan College (BMet) to celebrate their marking of 60 years of the Duke of Edinburgh Award (DofE).

The Charity launched the DofE Diamond challenge, to celebrate their Diamond Anniversary, which allowed students of all ages to take on a DofE inspired challenge and earn a limited-edtion DofE Diamond Challenge pin.

For the challenge, the students and staff abseiled down the front of Matthew Boulton College’s eight storey building in front of the HRH The Earl of Wessex.

The Earl of Wessex also met students who are currently doing their DofE awards and then presented the Principal of the College, Andrew Cleaves, with their licence to operate the DofE.
