 What is the Award based on?

The key principles are:
  • Non-competitive - a personal challenge, not a competition
  • Available to all - anyone can do it!
  • Voluntary - it's up to you what you do - it's your leisure time
  • Flexible - your programme is designed by you for you
  • Balanced - it will stretch you in all directions
  • Progressive - you improve at your own pace
  • Achievement focused - you can't fail!
  • Marathon not a sprint - it takes more than a short burst of enthusiasm
  • Personal development - it's the taking part that matters: getting an Award is the icing on the cake
  • Enjoyable - it's about getting out there and having fun!
