Chief Scout's Platinum Award

Chief Scout's Platinum Award

To gain this award the following requirements must be completed:

Members must undertake an extra three months in any of the skills, physical recreation or service challenges.

The refreshed Reach the Top guide also now offers support for members who are working towards their Chief Scout's Platinum and Chief Scout's Diamond Award. This has information for Explorer Scouts, leaders and Commissioners in one place.

Download the Reach the Top guide for Explorer Scouts, Scout Network members, Leaders and Commissioners from this page on the new website.

A logbook is also now available to help Explorer Scouts track the activities they have completed towards the award. It can be found here.


Certificates for this award are available in packs of 10 from Scout Shops. As well as cloth and metal badges, the completion of the Chief Scout's Platinum Award can be recognised by awarding this certificate.

CREST Awards

Explorers could complete a Bronze CREST project for their skill challenge. For more information about CREST Awards, click here.


Each young person who participates in the Programme, including badges and awards, should face a similar degree of challenge, and requirements can be adapted according to each young person’s abilities.  For more information and practical tips see our guidance on flexibility.
