Elliot Foundation attends launch of Junior Prince's Award

On Wednesday 4th June The Elliot Foundation’s Regional Director, Travis Latham, was invited to the launch of the Junior Prince’s Award with the patron HRH The Duke of Cambridge. Some of our academies will be running this new award during the summer holidays for year 5 children who will have a great opportunity to gain a national award whilst having great fun!

The SkillForce Junior Prince’s Award is new and unique for primary-age children. It will work with young people aged 9-10, especially (but not exclusively) under-privileged children for whom activities like this are not readily available. The Award contains: - Team building and problem-solving challenges with a hands-on element to the learning; - Remembrance and respect; - Team sports; - Outdoor pursuits, including camping out for a night; - First aid; - Navigation; and - A Social Action Project (working in the community to benefit others).

Students will complete a log book to reflect on what they have learnt. On completion of these activities alongside a SkillForce programme, students will receive a certificate.
