Leaders in Outdoor Experiential Learning


BAC Open Award Centre

The Duke of Edinburgh's Open Award is a volunteer led initiative supported by BAC for over 20 years. The Open Award programme offers open access to young people who do not have, or may find difficulty accessing the Duke of Edinburgh's Award Programme through other providers. The BAC Open Award offers programmes for Bronze, Silver and Gold levels and includes additional BAC equipment and staff support for expeditions locally and internationally.

Demand for access onto the BAC Open Award has grown annually. For essential health and safety and in order to maintain the highest programme delivery standards, participating numbers are limited relative to the number of volunteer leaders available to lead each level annually.

Registrations are now closed for 2013/14 and will open again in August 2014 for 2014/15.
