Case studies

The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award (DofEIA) is a major international charity operating in more than 130 countries around the world. Surrey Business School’s Executive Education team worked closely with them to create a blended learning programme, combining face to face and interactive online elements.

The programme was designed to deliver high-level leadership development training to a diverse group of DofEIA frontline managers from across the globe. The team also partnered with a start-up social enterprise to provide the opportunity for the students to test out their learning in a ‘live’ operating environment, with real-life learning outcomes to build on.

Over the course of 6 months, a series of five modules were delivered on the following topics:

  • Operations & innovation
  • Finance and income generation
  • Marketing and brand development
  • Managing stakeholders
  • Change leadership.

"The programme at Surrey Business School was an amazing experience. Being able to exchange ideas with my counterparts from around the world proved to be invaluable. I intend on taking the social franchise model back to TPATT's Executive, to guide TPATT to make the necessary changes to our business model."
