A Five Star Award holder has the personal, leadership and safety skills required to lead groups, (in formal and informal settings) in discipline specific advanced environments. The new award looks much the same structurally to the old 5 star, but the personal skills and leadership have been updated in line with current developments where appropriate.
When you successfully complete a Star Test you will receive a certificate (please note that we no longer issue badges)
