Chief Scout's Platinum Award: support materials

Reach the Top

The Reach the Top support guide has been updated to offer support for members who are working towards their Chief Scout's Platinum and Chief Scout's Diamond Awards, in addition to the Queen's Scout Award.

The guide reflects the changes from the International, Environment and Values list (IEV) to the International, Communities and Values list (ICV).

This document now contains all information for Explorer Scouts, Scout Network members, Leaders and Commissioners in once place.

Note: guidance in the new Reach the Top resource now allows for nights away from the Chief Scout's Platinum Award to be counted for the Chief Scout's Diamond Award; nights away used towards the Chief Scout's Diamond award can now be counted towards the Queen's Scout Award. This makes the nights away cumulative at each level of award.

A logbook is available to support Explorer Scouts to track the activities they have completed for their Chief Scout's Platinum Award. Download the logbook here.
