As a non-formal education framework, the Award can play a vital role in providing opportunities for young people to develop essential life skills, increase their employability and foster their creativity and innovation.
The Award is transforming individuals, communities and societies around the world. We have developed nine impact measures to quantify and explain the relationship between short term personal outcomes in young people and the longer term social impact of the Award. It is likely to take many years for the results of the impact measures to become evident; therefore we have also established a set of ten outcome measures that can be observed in the short-term. We are currently measuring these outcomes in young people doing the Award and will report on them shortly.
