Victoria Award Leader Training

There are two levels of training required within VIC for Award Coordinators and Leaders involved with the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award.

Level 1 - Online Award Leader Training - Online delivery

It is a mandatory requirement that Level 1 training has been completed before Award Leader registrations will be accepted in the Online Record Book (ORB). Level 1 training includes two courses:-

  • Level 1: Award Induction – to give an overview of the Award and help understand roles and responsibilities whilst underpinning the Award’s guiding principles and framework
  • Level 1: Award Delivery – to provide an overview of skills theories and awareness required to effectively deliver the Award

We recommend 2-4 hours be set aside for this task, noting that these courses can be undertaken over multiple sessions. The training is completed via the Online Learning Hub​. Instructions to assist in completing the training can be downloaded here.

Level 2 - Award Administration Training (AAT) - Face to face delivery

Award Leaders must complete Level 2 within 3 months and no later than 12 months of their ORB registration being accepted and completion of Level 1.
