Award categories

Finding your way and discovering skills you didn’t know you had can be very exciting. Doing that through activities that you enjoy is even more rewarding. So we’ve put together 6 categories to get you started.

Explore the categories and choose any two you like plus ‘My courses and career’. You then decide how you want to make up your 25 plus hours activity for each category – this can be a single activity or a mix of activities.
