Award Providers

What is an Award Provider?

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), and a discount is offered on a year's John Muir Trust membership.

Keeping it Wild group

John Muir Trust 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).

Award Providers:

  • 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.
