Setting up your International Award ORB account

If you have decided to undertake the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award – congratulations!

No doubt you are excited to get underway. Part of the process of the international award depends on identifying activities for your sections: skill, service and physical recreation as well as deciding what you will do for your adventurous journey.

Each section will need a goal that is achievable and that you can work towards realistically in the time that you have available for it. You should decide on your activities and their aims with your Award Leader.

Once you have registered your account following these instructions you will need to setup your account and log you activity. Maintaining accurate records on the ORB is essential to successfully completing your award.
