News & Events

From 1 January 2018, we are changing the minimum age requirements required to start the Bronze Award level. Previously, a participant needed to be 14 before they could register for Bronze, 15 for Silver and 16 for Gold. From next year, participants will be allowed to start their Bronze Awards in the school year they turn 14 – so that they can complete their Award with their peer groups. Once they have completed Bronze, they can progress to their Silver Award (without needing to turn 15 first). They will, however, still need to wait until their 16th birthday before they can start working on their Gold Awards.
