Does the John Muir Award help the people you work with be Respected?

69% said yes.
- Developing respect for each other within Award groups was commonly referenced. Specifically many referred to the importance of working together during John Muir Award activity, and participants taking on responsibility for planning and taking ownership of their Awards.
“All participants were involved in the planning and evaluation of each session. Where pupil or adult knowledge or skill was identified they were the 'expert' and shared this with the rest of the group.”
- Some also commented that completing the John Muir Award encourages respect from others beyond the group. “They gain the respect of their peers and the staff within the prison and at the office.”
- Some referenced that ‘respect’ does not have the same impact as some of the other indicators, particularly for groups whose Awards are planned and delivered by leaders.
“We operate the Discovery Award and very much plan the activities beforehand as we have our own knowledge of what can work and is needed in the park”.
