Chief Scout Gold and Platinum Awards

  |   By

On Monday 23rd Jan, Shackleton had a good meeting on mental health and identity. All of the leaders were incredibly proud of how engaged and mature the young people were during the informative evening.

We also invested 2 new members to join the unit, welcome Mirjam and Ben.

We also had the pleasure of presenting 3 chief scout gold awards and a chief scout platinum award.

The CSA Gold is the highest award a Scout can earn. To complete it, you need to complete all nine of the Challenge Awards, plus six Activity badges. The CSA Platinum award is the next Top Award after Chief Scout’s Gold Award from the Scouts Section. The Platinum award overlaps with the Bronze DofE award, but can be achieved even if you don’t have the Bronze DofE award. Just like the QSA you will need to complete some specific Scout requirements and at least 6 nights away.

Well done Harry, Leon, Mirjam and Joe!
