What does it involve?

There are various sections to the award: Volunteering, Physical, Skills and of course the Expeditions.

  1. Volunteering: helping someone, your community, or the environment. For example with a charity, assisting younger students at football clubs, or in primary schools. Helping an older person with their gardening or shopping.
  2. Skills: developing existing talents or trying something new. For example showing progress with a musical instrument, fishing, a refereeing course, or other activities after school.
  3. Physical: becoming fitter through sport, dance, swimming, gym or fitness activities.
  4. Expeditions: planning, training for and completing an adventurous journey. Two day walks and two expeditions with overnight camp – Practice and Qualifying.


Taking part requires time and a sustained commitment – you must show progression and sustained interest over a period of time in each of these sections. There are also weekly training sessions which run from October to April.
