The Award Partners all believe that the doing the Award develops essential skills such as confidence, improved communication, leadership, resilience and team working- all essential for a fast paced world of today. The Philosophy of the Award to be individualistic, non-competitive and flexible allows for the Award Programme to be integrated into daily lives without any changes in other commitments of a young persons life. As a matter of fact, the Programme allows very individual to step outside the competitive, fast paced world of today and focus on one's self-development, to challenge only oneself.
For example, the Corporate sector sees the Award as a perfect mechanism to allow young employees to expand on their experiences by intergrating it with existing training and development programmes including apprenticeships, a level, graduate or other schemes; thus enhancing Corporate Responsibility agendas by promoting volunteering, involvement in the community, a better understanding of the environment and a healthier and fitter workforce.
As we move into a new decade, it becomes all the more imperative to partner and "Equip for Life".
