The Queen’s Guide Award has two parts:

What do I when I have completed the work?

Submit your work with the online Notification of Completion Form (see below).

Once submitted, the digital Form is emailed directly to your nominated Unit Leader for confirmation of completion. It is then emailed to your State Queen’s Guide Award coordinator for recording.

This Form may be used to submit the following parts of your Queen’s Guide Award:

• Gold Endeavour Award component
• Focus
• Queen’s Guide Award component
• Interest (from the previous syllabus – should you still be working on this syllabus)
• Peer assessment evidence

Please note:

All peer assessment is undertaken in the peer Unit and there is no need to submit folders of work for assessment outside the Unit.

What do I do if I started my Queen’s Guide Award journey before the latest changes?

You can still submit your work with this form if you started their Queen’s Guide Award journey before the February 2023 updates.

If you started working on your Queen’s Guide Award before February 2023 you may continue working on the syllabus you started or transfer to the new syllabus.  Your State Queen’s Guide Award coordinator can provide support during the transition period.

For additional information ask your Unit Leader to contact the State Queen’s Guide Award coordinator in your State.
