Programme Resources

A list of current Partners of the Scout Association for downloadable Programme resources and materials (this was produced for Inspire Somerset 2017).

Resources for Sections

International Scouting

International – learning about Scouting in other countries and as a global movement. Exploring and celebrating other cultures through travel and in our own communities. This hyperlink will take you to the Scout Association’s information and activity packs on Global Issues activity badges, International activity badges and a wide range of resources including the REFUGEE RESPONSE pack.

Youth Shaped Scouting

Youth Shaped Scouting isn’t a new concept; empowering young people to decide, design and implement their own Programme and experiences is already happening right across Somerset. #YouShape month allows us to ensure that this continues and is embedded. The following hyperlink contains all the resources and information that leaders of all sections will need to support Youth Shaped Activities during YouShape month, February 2018, and throughout the year.

Quality Programme Checkers

The Quality Programme Checker is a tool designed to help us all to review our programmes, and to support us to deliver consistent quality Scouting. This is a tool that can be used by Section Leaders and their leadership team, as an opportunity to reflect on the programme from the term or year. It uses a Red Amber Green (RAG) system in order to help identify successes and any areas where the programme can be improved. The Scout Association has recently updated the Quality Programme checkers, and these can be found by following the hyperlink below

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
