Additional Information

The Advanced Scout Leadership Course is a weekend residential course departing and returning from Meadowbank Scout Hall for Scouts, aiming to provide advanced and life leadership skills to build and develop on the skills learnt from the Basic Scout Leadership Course.  The program is organised and run in line with the principles of scouting – it is practical, full of activities and based on the Patrol System.  To ensure all participants have a great experience, this course is open to all Scout’s within NSW.

For the May 2019 intake, we are seeking Scouts who meet the eligibility criteria.  PRIORITY will be based on:

  • applications received by the closing date.  Application forms must be complete and accurate to be accepted.
  • Full payment received; and
  • Applicants who missed out on previous courses.

The Advanced Scout Leadership Course is run by highly experienced Scout Leaders.  They will be helping the Scouts learn and enjoy a range of day and night activities to develop their leadership skills.  This weekend is primarily ‘Unsupervised’ with Youth Members working together, in a patrol to navigate in public open spaces.  The activities are set to test Scouts initiative.  There will be extended periods working as a Patrol, away from direct supervision of adults in unfamiliar areas.  Youth will be hiking, catching public transport, completing challenges, preparing meals etc. with regular checkpoints during the day.

How to apply

Applications for the Advanced Scout Leadership Course must be completed and ‘submitted’ online by the Youth Member individually.  Online applications will close at midnight on Friday, 10th May, 2019.  

Once you have ‘submitted’ your application, you then need to print it and:

  • Scouts: ensure that a parent and/or guardian (where applicable) signs the Agreement, Activities and Authority form and ticks the appropriate boxes for Activities, Authority and Court Order.
  • Leaders, Rovers and Other Adult Members: ensure that the Agreement, Activities and Authority form is signed by yourself.

Then SCOUT applicants need to obtain their Scout Leader’s signature. 

ENSURE you bring your signed paperwork with you on the weekend. 

You will receive emails as your application proceeds through the system, and remember at any time, you can contact the Course Leader or Benowie District Commissioner for assistance on benowie@sydneynorthscouts.com
