Training for IACs

The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award Foundation holds training for Award Leaders, Award Co-ordinators and Adventurous Journey Supervisors and Assessors from licensed Independent Award Centres (IACs)).

Upcoming training opportunities and enrolment:



Award Leader Training – Level 1 course and Basic Licence requirement - This course is for individuals to be able to effectively mentor and support participants through their Award programme. This course is for people who are new to the Award and for those who are more experienced. There will be separate sessions running throughout the course to address the needs resulting from the various levels of Award experience.

Award Management Training – Level 2 course - Although not a requirement, this course is also very useful for Award Co-ordinators from IACs holding a Basic Licence. This course focuses on all aspects relating to managing a successful and sustainable Award programme within an organisation but not on the actual programme itself. This course is for Award Co-ordinators and more experienced Award Leaders.

Adventurous Journey Supervisor and Assessor Training - Level 1 course and Basic Licence requirement - This course is designed to equip Adventurous Journey Supervisors with the knowledge and skills to deliver the Adventurous Journey section successfully, from the training of participants to the qualifying venture, and to prepare individuals to become Assessors for this section of the Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards.
