Skills for Life plan: A guide for Section Leaders Skills for Life booklet (for Scout members) Skills for Life presentation (for Scout members)

... to roll out the updated brand

Work closely with your Group Scout Leader to start to use resources in the updated brand. There is a two year roll out period so there is time to use up your current stock. Use the brand activation guide and resources that can be found on the Scout brand centre.

... to support Growth

A great programme delivered well attracts and retains more young people. The Quality Programme Checker is a tool to help you review and improve the programme for your section.
Work with your Training Advisors to complete Module 12A and 12B.

... to support Inclusivity

The Inclusivity RAG Assessment resource is designed to understand how you are doing in relation to being open to all and what actions you could take to develop further. For support and guidance on inclusion we provide further information on the Scouting for All pages.

... to support Youth Shaped

The more young people are involved in shaping their programme the more they will get out of it, and the more likely they are to stay, do well and achieve their top awards. Take a look at this resource

... to support Community Impact

Running quality community impact projects is an essential part of a great Scouting programme and we’re aware that these projects take planning and time.

A Million Hands provides ‘off the shelf’ resources for leaders making it easier to deliver the Community Impact Staged Activity Badge. You could also team up with other Groups in your District to run a community impact project through A Million Hands.
