About The Course

The Advanced Scout Leadership Course is a residential course, designed for Scouts aimed 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 March 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 course 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.
