Pre-assignment Rolis meeting Amsterdam august 25 2012 Background The idea on the dansih part of the project has

always been to implement the principles of recognition in the overall trainingsystem of the scout organisation. This is important for the understanding of the future perspectives. We have chosen not to link our training system or recognition initiatives to the formal training system. This is because we believe we loos more than we gain. It is already well respected to be a scout in Denmark. Furtering that idea will not give our members more options, but will definitely restrict the possibilities for adjusting and developing our trainingsystem. That Is the main reason we have chosen to focus strongly on the personal and informal recognition. The overall goal of the ROLIS in our organisation has been to empower the individual member in their own understanding and self assessment of their competencies. The idea being that if they are better aware of their competencies they will tell about it to their friends, families and colleagues in a different way. This is important because by telling different stories about their scouting activites than they do now, we can broaden the understanding of what scouting can do for an individual and society as a whole. That way we can work towards a more precise and better understanding and recognition of scouting learning in the taget group that are most important to our members, their network. We also believe the personal connection is important in spreading influencing a better recognition in society as a whole. When we think of our members and the reach of their network it reaches far enough to make a significant impact on society as a whole. The project has for us taken two directions 1. Competences are relevant in more than one domain In this idea we see great potential. We have decided to implement that definition in our framework because we want our members and leaders to recognise themselves that what they learn in scouting is valuable and their competences are in high demand. This will also incourage them to start talking about their development through scouting in the workplace (maybe even formally) and elsewhere. This is an important element of our strategy for recognition of learning in scouting. 2. You need to set your own goals and be aware of your own learning We started from an appretiative and systemic point of view which is the dominant leadership philosophy in our organisation. This means we have to focus on the selfrealisation of learning and that learning has to come from personal desire to grow and develop. Country Denmark Situation in 1 year The current ideas and framework for a competences based training has been implementet on national level: All cources include elements of: - competence Situation in 5 years Competence based training is the dominant form of training courses support learning and are planned and marketed as a result of the demand triggered by the What is your ultimate goal/What do you want To shift the understanding I the general population of scouting from a pleasant leisure activity that is mostly about friendship and nature To: scouting is an important

competencebased training. The vast majority of leaders have a thorough understanding of their own competences. They use a new learning management platform that includes a web-portal and apps for the major platforms. This learning management platform supports them in keeping focus on their goals in their day to day activities as well as helps the training organisation market and develop the training event that are demanded

player in the development of our society. It is about personal growth and taking responsibility. Scouting is one of the places I can go if I am interested in speeding up my personal development and their main activities are - Competence development on all levels - Developing leadership - Democratic citizenship - Preserving nature - Friendship, fun, extraordinary experiences - Making a positive difference in the world on local, national and international level
