What Awards can I Work Towards?
The Explorer Belt is a challenge of a lifetime. It is a chance to take part in a ten day expedition that brings you a real understanding of a different country, its culture and way of life. You will develop this understanding by travelling through your chosen country, working as part of a small team to complete a series of projects and most importantly by meeting local people. It is an experience and an achievement that you will remember for the rest of your life.
The Chief Scout's Diamond Award is the highest of the Chief Scout's Awards, and the final step before the Queen's Scout Award.
The Queen's Scout Award is the highest youth awardachievable in the Scouting movement in the Commonwealth realms, including the United Kingdom, Canada (Queen'sVenturer Award), Australia, and New Zealand, where Scoutsoperate under the patronage of Queen Elizabeth II.
Scouts of the World Award is a Scout Network only award that gives you as a member the chance to undertake a project of your choice within the themes of Peace, Environment and Sustainability and take action on your chosen issue.
Through your Scouts of the World Award Journey, you will develop skills and knowledge that will empower you to undertake a project that will make an impact in your local, national or international community as well as develop your personal skills.
The Duke of Edinburgh's Award (DofE) is a voluntary, non-competitive programme of activities for anyone aged 14-24. Doing their DofE gives young people the opportunity to experience new activities or develop existing skills.
There are three progressive levels of programmes which, when successfully completed, lead to a bronze, silver or gold award. Young people create their own DofE programme by choosing volunteering, physical and skills activities, going on an expedition and, for their gold only, taking part in a residential activity. Within Scouting, this links directly to the chief scout’s platinum, diamond and Queen’s scout awards.
The DofE is delivered through a number of licensed providers, of which The Scout Association is one of the largest in the country.
