This campaign by the British Safety Councils aims to decrease the numbers of accidents and injuries at the workplace by offering a qualificatoion to pupils before they enter their worklife. Schools can become registered centres. They get a teacher resource pack and get access to free online teaching material. The British Safety Council is paying for all 14-19 year olds in full-time education and those not in education, employment or training (NEET) to gain a free health and safety qualification. Assessment is portfolio based and about 6-8 hours teaching and assessment time are recommended. All the marking is done by the British Safety Council. The award itself is a nationally recognised qualification that fits neatly into existing programmes of study such as PHSE, ASDAN and work-related learning. It contributes 3.5 points to school performance figures. It was launched in the academic year 2007/2008, 1,800 schools (35% of UK total) have participated in this voluntary programme up to now, 40,000 young people have received the qualification.
