Gold Award Presentations (GAPs)

Achieving your Gold Award is a big deal.  It shows that you have the skills, determination and mentality to really succeed.  So it’s only right that you get a proper celebration of your achievement.  The Gold Award Presentations (or GAPs for short) are just that.

You can expect to receive an invite to a GAP around 8-12 months after the GAP office receives your approved Gold notification form from your Licensed Organisation.

Dorset’s Gold Award holders usually receive their certificates in London at St James Palace, having received their badge/brooch from Dorset Council’s DofE office (01305 224517). Please check out the information and FAQ page for lots of information, advice and travel tips
