  • A school can apply at any time to be ‘verified’ for Stage 1.
  • Only when Stage 1 is verified can a school process its application for Stage 2 or 3.
  • Successful applications to each Stage are reviewed every 2 years. A school can move up each stage at any time following verification.
  • A school is only verified once a member of the Young Chamber Board has confirmed the evidence provided to complete a Stage.
  • If the evidence provided does not satisfy the compliance for meeting that Stage’s criteria, a school has the option to stay at its current Stage and apply again when new evidence can be supplied.
