Updated Peak Award Notification Forms

Some updates have been made to the peak award notification forms. These forms are used to notify your branch/state office of a Scout who has completed their peak award in any section, and would like for their achievement to be recorded and the award to be sent out.

The main changes are an update of the email addresses for each branch to which you send the form, and the updated names of the peak awards.

The notification forms can be found on the Achievement Pathways page, under the Peak Awards tab.

Special Interest Areas Planning Tools Updated

The Special Interest Area Planning Tools have been updated to correct a number of minor problems with the fillable PDF fields. These tools can be used by Scouts to support their Plan>Do>Review> of their Special Interest Area projects, and you can use these tools to electronically complete the planning and send to your Unit Council.

There are two version of the tool. One is for Joey Scouts and Cub Scouts, and the other is for Scouts, Venturer Scouts, and Rover Scouts.

You can find the tools on the Achievement Pathways page, under the Special Interest Areas tab.

These corrections were made thanks to a member using the feedback form to alert us to the problem! You can send your feedback too!

Updated Elements Poster

The Elements of the Program Poster has been updated to reflect revised program symbolism.

  • The original icons for the age sections have now been replaced by the Scouts Australia age section logos.
  • The new peak award images have replaced the old award scheme badge images.

This magnificent poster can be found on the Other Resources page of the resources website, under the Group Support tab. These make great posters for the wall of your hall, and become an easy reference point for every aspect of the program.

Programming Overview Updated

The Programming Overview document has been updated based on recent feedback.

The content has been significantly reviewed and updated to bring it up to date with key messages about good programming using the four Challenge Areas.

It has also been updated with the new branding and to remove the “Pioneers” titles originally featured on this very early resource for the new program.

You can find version 2.0 in the Weekly Program page, under the Programming tab.
