How long does it take?

During this period, you need to show regular activity and commitment averaging at least an hour a week. You do this by filling out your Online Record Book once a week or once a month explaining your progress. You can’t achieve an Award in a short burst of enthusiasm!

At LAS you are already doing after-school activities and sports that qualify toward your Award. The difference is that to earn an Award, you must set goals and demonstrate commitment toward attaining them. If you’re already doing CAS in IB, then recording your activities is especially easy.

You can take a break, for holidays, exams or just because you feel like it. As long as you’ve finished the activities before your 25th birthday you can still achieve an Award.  


The table below is from the UK website, where they use “DofE” instead of “International Award” and “Expeditions” instead of “Adventurous Journeys”.
