Jack Petchy Achievement Award Scheme

We are very pleased to be accepted onto the Jack Petchey Achievement Award Scheme and have been given Silver award status.

Throughout 2013-2016 we nominated 26 young people and 3 leader awards, who were successful for various great reasons in getting their awards. They have been presented with certificates, and badges receiving their Jack Petchey Foundation Achievement Award. All were invited to a Jack Petchey Awards evenings which took place at Harlow Playhouse. The scheme is a reward and recognition initiative which enables schools and youth organisations to celebrate the achievements of their young people as well as receive additional funding. There are many different ways to nominate and select award winners. Our coaches help us use a system to nominate our young people to ensure our participants are at the heart of decision making.
