Queen’s Guide award

If you’re aged 16 to 25 and want to work on the highest award in Girlguiding the Queen’s Guide Award is for you!

It takes 3 years and is definitely a challenge, but there is lots of support available.

The Queen’s Guide Award has five elements:

  • Service in guiding
  • Personal skill development
  • Exploration or expedition
  • Community action
  • Residential experience

You can achieve your Queen’s Guide Award alongside your Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award as long as you satisfy the requirements for both Awards.

Find out more on the Girlguiding website, then when you’re ready, contact Jennifer Sibley the Queen’s Guide Coordinator to get started!
