Moving On Award (Scouts to Explorers)

How to earn your badge

  1. Find out what your options are for being an Explorer in your area.
    This includes finding out about the Young Leaders’ Scheme.
  2. Attend both Scouts and Explorers for a short period of time (at least three weeks). Take an active part in the Explorer Unit programme.

You can work for the Explorer Membership Award while you earn your Moving on Award.

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
