The Careers Award is one of the Proficiency Awards that a Rover can earn. The requirements are as follows:
- You must be engaged in a recognised system of post-school training leading to professional or technical qualifications for your career.
- You must produce evidence that your progress in your studies and training has been above average in any one year.
- You must, at least three times during the year, report progress to the RSL and Crew producing evidence (models, essays, notebooks, etc) in support of your claim.
- When you are yourself satisfied that you have a claim to the Award, you must submit evidence to the Rover Scout Leader and Crew who, after seeking any necessary expert advice, will decide if you have reached a satisfactory standard of attainment. If necessary, before being passed, you may be asked to do further work on any aspect in which you have not qualified.
