The Scouting Programme
The word ‘Programme’ in Scouting refers to the range of activities, challenges and experiences that young people experience in Scouting.
The Scouting Programme provides a structure of badges and awards, which are progressive through the sections, and based on a number of objectives. The objectives are based on Scouting’s Purpose to ‘actively engage and support young people in their personal development, empowering them to make a positive contribution to society’.
The Scouting Programme for all sections is based around three main themes: outdoor and adventure, world and skills. This programme of activities is planned by our leadership team in partnership with young people, and incorporates elements from each theme, to offer young people the most interesting and diverse experience.
There is flexibility within Scouting which means that all young people, regardless of their abilities, can enjoy and achieve. Our Programme is flexible and has room to adapt and accommodate the needs of the individuals in the section, with the focus being on personal development.
