The award is a challenging programme of activites which will help you to learn new skills, help others and experience adventure and it will give you a great sense of achievement. What's more, many organisations such as employers and universities take a good view of the Award and what it says about the person who achieved it.
What does it Involve?
There are 3 levels, Bronze, Silver and Gold - and for each you complete activites in four sections -
Service, Skills, Physical Recreation, and Expeditions. At the Gold level you also take part in a Residential Project. Each section has a wide range of options and activites to choose from.
Participants begin the award in year 9 and can continue throughout their schooldays and onwards if they take on all three challenges.
Initial expedition training takes place during Short Courses and students can take advantage of the many extra curricular clubs on offer within Walton High to complete the other sections.
Local clubs, charities and employers also help students to complete their target challenge.
Who is it for?
Anyone between the ages of 14-25.
