The Fundamentals Posters

There are some aspects that you will see in Scouting and the program that are essential to achieving the stated goals of Scouting. They are what makes our program unique as a global Movement of young people and adult volunteers. We call these the Fundamentals of Scouting.

We have refreshed some of the posters that promote the Fundamentals.. You might recognise many of these from The Adventure Begins resource kit of a few years ago. Now they have been refreshed using the the current Scouts Australia branding, with updated program language, and are now available on the Program Resources site.

Check these out and perhaps put them up in your hall!

Supporting Section Transitions

A new resource has been developed to support Scouts, their youth and adult leaders, and parents, to guage when to begin their transition to the next age section.

These guides help you to explore the Educational Objectives of the age section when considering transition to the next section.

The items in the checklists are based on the SPICES I… Statements, as well as other indicators that individuals can use to determine readiness.

The checklist provides guidance as to when a young person is ready to change, and each dot point should involve a conversation with the Scout. However, this should not be the only thing used to inform the decision.

The Scout themselves, and their immediate circle of friends, family, and fellow Scouts know them the best and should be a part of the decision about when to begin transition.

Milestone Assisting and Leading – Some Examples

To help Scouts and Leaders understand more about assisting and leading for each Milestone level a series of resources have been created outlining a range of different scenarios for each age sections.

There is a document for each age section, and they can be found on the Achievement Pathways page, under the Program Essentials tab.

All age sections, except Scouts, have now been updated with some clarifications and new Scouts Australia branding. We’ll get the Scout section one out soon!

Special Interest Areas Project Resource Updates

Two key resources for Special Interest Area projects have been updated.

The flowchart that helps Scouts Plan> their pathway to a great Special Interest Area project has been updated with new graphics and updated language of the program.

This resource provides a framework for Scouts to brainstorm possible project ideas. It starts with thinking about interests and strengths, and then to consider what could challenge that individual to know or do more with that interest. Finally, it gets the Scout to think about how they will go about it, and who they might need to support their project.

The ideas generated in this flowchart can then be used to complete the Special Interest Area planning sheet or the equivalent on Scouts | Terrain.

In addition, some clarifications and other updates to the overall guide to Special Interest Area projects has been updated. Updates include information about patrols working on a Special Interest Area project together.

The Special Interest Area Flowchart and the Guide to Special Interest Areas can be found on the Achievement Pathways page, under the Special Interest Area tab.

“When Old Meets New” the poster

Our youth program is re-imagining Scouting for the 21st century. But what’s changing, and what should we expect when the old meets new?

This new program is being progressively implemented across Australia. As we see, hear and discuss the changes, there’s some important differences to be aware of.

When Old Meets New compares our old ways of doing things with the approach of the new youth program.

This poster has previously been viewed at major events and on the Scouts Australia website. Now you can download it here and put it up in your hall or meeting space!

The poster is available in the Scout Group Support tab, on the Other Resources page.

It would complement nicely the Elements of the Program Poster, also found under the Scout Group Support 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.
