The Mark Scott Leadership for life award in 2020

We have recruits now in 6th year, and are delighted to be recruiting from current 6th years in participating schools.

As with most areas of life, there are a number of unknowns, but we've planned a programme recognisable by past participants that is both effective and within the safety needs of Government Guidelines and the safety of our participants and their families.

The Award outcomes are retained, as will (Government Guidelines allowing) a community project and adventurous outdoor element.

The Award will be delivered through a mixture of distanced work online and appropriate 'in person' activity to create project groups throughout the autumn term.

We're planning for projects benefiting participants and communities to be run during the winter facilitated by Instructors in line with Government guidelines for CLD (Community Learning and Development).

We will then deliver an outdoor adventure and challenge element compatible with Education Guidelines, either on a daily basis, or as allowed; short expedition based or residential. In Spring 2021.

We're aware that there will need to be flexiblity in delivery to allow for the many likely national and regional developments to come.

This page (please feel free to bookmark it) will be where all information on this years' programme will be posted from - so watch this space.
