Participants can enrol to Silver at any time from the 1st June before they go into Yr10. 

Those working on their Bronze can start their Silver with the sections that they have finished at Bronze. 

It is possible to join as a Direct to Silver and do an extra 6 months on one of the longer sections. 

The Award is very flexible in the way that it can be approached: not all sections need to be started at the same time and two levels can be worked on at once, but ask for the fine print!
