The Silver Award can be started once you are 15. It involves 4 sections and will take at least 6 months (if you completed Bronze) or 12 months (if you are direct entry into silver). It is made up of 4 sections:

  • Volunteering - helping someone, your community or the environment
  • Physical - becoming fitter through sport, dance or fitness activities
  • Skills - developing existing talents or trying something new
  • Expedition - planning, training for and completing an adventurous journey



In recent years we have used the following areas for our Bronze level expeditions

Tentsmuir – Fife

Glen Tilt – Perthshire
