Completing the Grand Prior's Award

When you work towards the Grand Prior's Award, you'll work through different stages.

The first step is completing the Membership Award - a taster in what being a Cadet is all about. You'll get to try out first aid skills, learn about the exciting history of St John Ambulance, and find out how your local unit runs.

After this, there are four more stages of the award:

  • Bronze Award
  • Silver Award
  • Gold Award
  • Grand Prior's Award

It usually takes about four years to complete and is as rewarding as it is challenging!

Award subjects

As you work through the different stages of the Grand Prior's Award, you'll be able to study a wide range of subjects.

Subject areas include:

  • first aid and event skills
  • St John Ambulance - past and present
  • health and wellbeing
  • personal development
  • social action.
