A collection of resources focussing on the patrol system and Unit Councils have been updated, removing the ‘Draft’, ‘Pioneers’, and ‘The Adventure Begins’ tags from these files. Additionally, some minor language changes have occurred to align with the language of the program.
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!
We have made some updates to the documents known as “Unit Council Supporting The Peak Award”. The overall messages are the same, with some minor updates. They include:
Design and branding update
Language of the program updates
Clarification of how Special Interest Area projects can be completed as individuals or in patrols
Changes to the names of peak awards (where appropriate)
Updating to Personal Development Course or Unit Management Course requirements of the peak awards
Including Scouts | Terrain as a resource for Scouts to use
These guides are designed to help Unit Councils in each section support Scouts in their journey to the peak award.
You can find updated versions for Joey Scouts, Cub Scouts, Scouts, and Venturer Scouts. They are located on the Achievement Pathways page, under the Peak Award Resources tab. Or you can go directly to the resource page:
