Queen Scouts Award
The Queen’s Scout Award is the top award in Scouting, the requirements for this award need more effort than the Duke of Edinburgh’s (DofE) Gold Award!
If you go the right way about it, by making sure that you register for the Gold DofE award when you start on the Queen’s Scout Award you can get both without any extra effort.

Duke of Edinburgh Award
As a member of The Scout Association you can participate in the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award as well as Scouting Awards. This is done through being a member of an Explorer Scout Unit or the Scout Network.
The Chief Scout’s Platinum Award, the Chief Scout’s Diamond Award and the Queen’s Scout Award have similar requirements to the D of E Bronze, Silver and Gold awards (respectively).
The Explorer Belt is the challenge of a lifetime, open to Explorer Scouts aged 16 and over and members of the Scout Network.
It is a chance to take part in a ten-day expedition that brings a real understanding of a different country, its people and way of life.
