Program Language Guide Updated

The guide to how to use and write the terms and other language of the Scouts Australia program has been updated.

In version 2, the most significant addition is the language of Scouts | Terrain.

There are also some other clarification and tidy ups throughout the document.

It is recommended that if you are developing resources, communications, documents, training modules, etc., about the program, that you use this to guide your writing.

Why Units?

In our one program, one journey symbolic framework of the youth program, why are we using the word “units” to describe a formation of Scouts from any section, meeting together to actively participate in a diverse program?

Under today’s Scouts Australia program, we are all Scouts. We come together to be part of a common and familiar experience, that progresses as we grow and develop.

This resource explains the background to this particular language and why it is used in our youth program.

How To Write The Language of the Program

A new resource has been created, called: How To Write The Language of the Program.

When developing materials for the program, it is important to be consistent in the way in which we write about each of the elements of the new program. This could be when creating marketing materials, when creating new resources, or it could be when making activity flyers and programs for the family fridge!

To learn how to write the terminology correctly, please download this document. You can find it under the Fundamentals… tab on the Fundamentals page of the program resources website, or download directly from here.

We invite your feedback on this resource. Go to the feedback page to do so.
