Advanced Awards

Once an organisation has completed the First Steps Award they can then progress to working towards the Advanced Award, if they wish, with the full support of the Up & Active Workplaces Team. Progression on the Avanced Awards will be achieved following assessment against the progressive criteria as set out in each level.

Targets reflect the expected level of health activities relevant to the business, thus making it possible for the very small or the very large to participate.
