Scouts Awards

31/01/2021 Update

While 'normal' Scouting is suspended, don't forget to keep up to date with ordering any CSA certificates (Bronze to Diamond) that you need. At the moment we are unable to present these at our usual Blackwell events but we will be recognising achievements via a virtual event during the year.  The form is here.

Any queries email

Birmingham County CSA Process

Birmingham County has a process for acquiring the Badges and Certificates as well as recognising achievements via a virtual award event which is in place instead of the Blackwell events. This process is designed to make leaders, parents and the organisers roles easier and quicker. Details of this process can be found here. If you have any feedback on this process please let us know, as we are always very grateful for your comments.

CSA's certificates submissions

CSA's certificates (Bronze to Diamond) submitted through the website are issued by Jill Bowman. The management of the virtual achievement events is  co-ordinated by Liz Thomas. Jill and Liz liaise with names and any general queries.

Award Presentations

Chief Scouts Award Presentations events involve the young people taking part in three one hour long sessions, including an award presentation session and two adventurous activity sessions.

Award Presentation events are held on a regular basis three times a year at Blackwell Court.

All award recipients will be automatically invited to attend the next available Award Presentation event with invitations being emailed directly to parents/carers, with leaders copied in.

Unfortunately, due to the high number of young people invited to attend each presentation we are unable to defer invitations to the following presentation date.
