Quality Programme Checker

The Quality Programme Checker is a tool designed to help you to review your programme, and make sure that you are delivering quality Scouting to the young people that you support.

This is a tool that can be used by Section Leaders and their leadership team, as an opportunity to reflect on the programme from the term or year. It uses a Red Amber Green (RAG) system in order to help identify successes and any areas where the programme can be improved.

Click on the links below to access the Quality Programme Checkers for each section:

A quality Programme definition has also been developed. A quality Programme is challenging, relevant and rewarding for every young person. A further breakdown of the quality definition and what this means is below.

A Quality Programme is Challenging, Relevant and Rewarding for every young person.

What we mean by Challenging

  • More opportunities for outdoor and adventurous activities in safe environments
  • Young people gaining confidence by participating in new or less familiar activities and stepping out of their comfort zones
  • All young people regardless of their abilities, can enjoy and achieve

What we mean by Relevant

  • Young people shape the programme based on what they want to learn and explore
  • Ensuring the needs of every young person are met
  • Responding to what young people are currently inquisitive about and reflecting this in the programme

What we mean by Rewarding

  • Developing skills for life, including teamwork and leadership
  • Supporting young people with their progression through the sections
  • Young people are excited about Scouting, having fun and increasing in confidence
