WELCOME TO YOUR AWARD CHALLENGE.

Taking part in the Award isn't easy– it requires commitment over time.

You must set for yourself personal goals in each section. These goals should be achievable and progressive, and ultimately allow you to feel a sense of achievement when you complete each section. Your Award Leader and Section Assessor are there to help you identify and try to achieve these goals.

HOW DO I EARN MY AWARD?

  • Set SMART goals for every section of your Award.
  • Keep your Assessors informed of your progress. You should be in contact with each Assessor regularly (we recommend every 2-4 weeks).
  • Do your activities regularly (at least 1 hour per week) for the required time at your level. For more information, see our Award Framework.
  • Update your Online Record Book (ORB) regularly. Try to keep a journal or diary. You may like to take photos, shoot video, or record a soundtrack— and you can upload these files as part of your records.
  • Complete your Adventurous Journey: training and preparation, Practice Journey(s), and finally, Qualifying Journey. Don't forget to write up an appropriate Journey report.
  • Whenever you complete a section, contact the Assessor of that section. Together, you should discuss your experience, achievements, and progress. This information helps ​them provide the Assessor report required for your ORB.
