Course objectives

Leading Scouting (Distance) provides you with the opportunity to learn about many fundamental aspects of being a scout leader in The Guides and Scouts of Sweden, and is designed to help you develop in your role of leader.

You will learn things that enable you to better understand the essence of Scouting. We will primarily focus on four main objectives. You will:
  • Learn about the vision and values of the Guides and Scouts of Sweden.
  • Obtain knowledge about the programme for the Guides and Scouts of Sweden and how we can use it to develop children.
  • Receive tools designed to help you plan and run.
  • Gain ideas and insights into what a listening and supportive style of leadership means to you as a scout leader.

How the course works

This course will take you a total of about 6 hours to complete.

The course consists of three digital parts and three homework assignments. Each digital part of the course takes about 40-60 minutes to complete, depending on how quickly you choose to proceed through the course material.

Between the digital parts of the course you will be presented with assignments to work on. The assignments are designed to be performed in your scout group, as part of the scouting activity for which you are a leader. You should therefore spread out the digital parts of the course to ensure that you can take part in at least one scout meeting between each part.

Count that, it is likely to take you about 3-4 weeks to complete the entire course.
