THE AWARDS

At Hexnet our aim is to help the Hallam Explorers and Network members achieve the prestigious Queen's Scout Award. 

Along the way the members will also earn their Duke of Edinburgh's Award as this then forms part of the Queen's Scout and Chief Scout's Awards. 

You can start working towards the awards from the ages of 14 - 25, as long as you meet the minimum age for each award level.

If you're not sure which award level you should be working towards, see the 'flow chart'.
