Wood Badge Training Program and Advanced Training Evaluation
The awarding of a Wood Badge should be the aim of every Leader and it is important that a Leader be supported through the Wood Badge Training Program. I.e., From the Introduction to Scouting, (sign up), completing on-demand modules and weekend training courses and ultimately be awarded the Wood Badge.
This demonstrates a commitment and a learning process that should provide the best outcomes for Youth and other Leaders. The Wood Badge evaluation is conducted by the District or Region Commissioner or their nominee.
The Wood Badge Project is an expansion of a topic based on the Fundamentals of Scouting, (Purpose Principles and Method), that a Leader may wish to learn more about.
This is personal development and will ultimately benefit Scouting.
The Leader should think about what they would like to do for their Wood Badge Project, discuss the ideas with their Group Leader and/or PLA. These ideas need to be brought to the Scouting Leadership Course where they will be discussed with the Leader Trainer and approval given on the final project.
The Project should not be arduous and only a “seeking of further knowledge” about the benefits and why a topic supports the Youth or Adult program.
There appears to be a number of versions of the evaluation/assessment documentation and the Links below are the most current.
Would you please discuss the evaluation process with your team as some research does indicate that, with a few documents, the boxes are being “ticked” without a real discussion.
Section 19, (of the evaluation), records the discussion in relation to the Project, with a section to allow for additional time to further the Project.
Again, the project is only an expansion of knowledge of a topic, not a thesis.
