There are a number of external awards that young people can get involved with and leaders can incorporate in to their programmes. Below are links to some of the awards:
Duke of Edinburgh Award
A staged award that gives all young people, aged 14 -24, the chance to develop skills for work and life, fulfil their potential and have a brighter future. Find out more…
Community Safety Award
This award helps to prepare young people to have an understanding and awareness of what to do in the event of an emergency, consider the family unit in preparing for an emergency, and extending to those people within the community who may require assistance.
The original Scout badge has now been used as the basis for a soon-to-be Nationwide award scheme.
(If you have a suggestion for other external awards that you think other leaders may be interested in and we can add to this page please let us know.)
