As an Explorer or Network member you have the opportune to complete work towards some of scoutings highest awards for your age range. There are three main scouting awards, which can be linked to The Duke of Edinburgh’s Awards, the chief scout’s diamond, platinum and Queen’s Scout Awards.

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.

You can find out more about these awards and how they are linked by reading the ‘The Adventure Begins Leaflet

If you would like to undertake these awards, you will need to register with either Sheffield Don Explorers, Young Leaders or Network. To find out more information and how to register or if you have already registered but not sure what you should be doing please use this form.
