You can start the Bronze Award when you are 14 years old. The opportunity to do the Bronze Award will therefore commence in the Summer Term of Year 9 and will be led by Mr Podbury and his team.
The Bronze Award programme has 4 sections - Volunteering, Physical, Skills and Expedition. You must do a minimum of 3 months activity for each of the Volunteering, Physical and Skills sections. You must also plan, train for and complete a 2 day (1 night) Expedition.
You also have to spend an additional three months on one of the Volunteering, Physical or Skills sections. It is your choice which one and, though you can change your mind later, you should decide which section you want to do for longer at the beginning. Knowing how long you’re going to do it for will help you to choose your activity and set your goals for each section.
