John Muir Award Providers
We term groups or organisations that successfully deliver the Award ‘Providers’. ‘Successful delivery’ means that we’ve agreed a Proposal Form, registered activity, and approved a Certificate Request.
This process creates an informal agreement between a Provider and the John Muir Award. At this point, a time-bound Provider Certificate is available (although if the process hasn’t been straightforward we may ask to work through it a further time before a Provider Certificate is offered).
John Muir Award staff will freely provide:
- Support, guidance and advice on the delivery of the Award.
- Promotional material and resources as appropriate.
- Certificates to all individuals who successfully complete each Award.
- An annual Certificate to recognise Award Provider status.
- Opportunities to access John Muir Award Training courses and events (varied costs).
- Promote the ethos of the John Muir Award.
- Ensure that all individuals for whom a Certificate is requested fulfil Award Criteria.
- Use John Muir Award processes, documents and timeframes to ensure effective registration and confirmation, and maintain relevant records.
- In conjunction with John Muir Award staff, provide suitable information, guidance and training opportunities for their staff/volunteers.
- Ensure open communication with John Muir Award staff (phone/email).
- Ensure that adequate Health and Safety measures are in place, and be covered by appropriate public liability and personal accident insurance.
- Share good practice in-house, and with other organisations, as appropriate.
