Transforming the Award

Operational and Promotional Award Materials

Published: 4 Nov 2013

Over the last three years, representatives of National Award Authorities have been working with the staff of the International Award Foundation and experts within external agencies to make sure that we can all meet the increasing demand and need for the Award.

We’ve been concentrating on creating a consistent ‘Award way of doing things’ that:

  • reaches out to and copes with more participants from more diverse backgrounds
  • enables young people to achieve an Award which has international credibility and recognition
  • sustains and improves the quality of delivery and experience for young people

This has resulted in us developing a range of adaptable tools that will increase the capability of all of us to deliver the Award to young people and improve our responsiveness.
