New Programme

The word ‘Programme’ in Scouting refers to the range of activities, challenges and experiences that young people experience in Scouting. This programme of activities is planned by the leadership team in partnership with young people. The Programme should be flexible and have room to adapt and accommodate the needs of the individuals in the section.


The Scouting Programme for all sections is based around three main themes: outdoor and adventure, world and skills. In each section a range of badges and awards support all aspects of Scouting, including the main themes: leadership, teamwork and personal development. The Programme should be delivered in a balanced way that incorporates elements from each theme, to offer young people the most interesting and diverse experience.


The Scouting Programme received a revamp at the begining of 2015 and was fully implemented in all Sections by September 2015.
