There are three levels to the Award programme, starting with Bronze and progressing to Silver or Gold, with the time and investment required increasing as the participant moves from Bronze towards the Gold Award.
While you are able to begin straight away with the Gold Award (depending on your age), most participants begin with the Bronze Award and work up from there to the higher levels.
|Level||Minimum Starting Age||Regular Length of Award||Length if Previous Level Achieved|
|Silver||16||52 weeks||26 weeks|
|Gold||17||78 weeks||52 weeks|
An application fee of €15 applies for the Bronze Award, €20 for Silver, and €25 for Gold.
