What is n:counta?
The 10-14s age group in GB is known as n:counta.
n:counta for 10 to 14-year-olds is planned to equip young people with life skills which will help them to face up to the real issues that are part of their everyday life experiences as they enter their teenage years.
This age group will experience many changes as they cope with the onset of puberty, change schools and meet new friends. They’re very aware of world issues and will be influenced by their peers, the media, celebrities, fashion and music. They’re likely to question and challenge authority.
Young people involved in this programme will explore issues that they encounter day by day and in turn develop new talents and skills to enable them to make contributions to real life.
Young people can earn badges by completing individual topics. We have over 30 themed topics within this programme that explore relevant topics to the age group as they develop and encounter new experiences and challenges in life. Badges include Fairtrade, Money Matters, and Using Leisure.
