Progression within The Girls' Brigade
Within The Girls’ Brigade Ireland, there are two separate progression pathways both marked by the presentation of badges which are worn on girls’ uniforms. The first pathway is Years of Service which as the name suggests, are awarded to girls based on their time in GB. Girls may take breaks in their GB career and their years will be carried over. The second pathway is Skills Development. These badges are awarded based on achieving certain targets in relation to the programme of activities offered within GB. Points are awarded for each activity that the girls complete and at the end of the year, girls with enough points are awarded their prized badges.
There are also company medals, shields and trophies which are awarded at annual displays. National trophies & medals are awarded to winning teams at competitions.
