How to earn your badge
The ‘major world faiths’ are widely accepted to include Judaism, Hinduism, Islam, Christianity, Buddhism and Sikhism. However, this is not an exhaustive list and a broader list of more religions can be found via BBC Religion pages, which also includes numerically smaller groups, such as Shinto and Taoism.
A useful interactive resource to support young people to explore world faiths is BBC Bitesize, there are wealth of videos and animations which explore specific elements of different religions eg. What is it like to go Hajj, or what happens at Passover specifically aimed at young people.
Each young person who participates in the Programme, including badges and awards, should face a similar degree of challenge, and requirements can be adapted according to each young person’s abilities. For more information and practical tips see our guidance on flexibility
