Scouting Nederland - Netherlands
Project Name Project Contact Recognition of Learning in Scouting Eric Lepelaar e.lepelaar@scouting.nl Project Overview +31 (0) 33 496 09 46

The aim of the project is to promote, enhance and facilitate the ideas of recognition of (prior) learning in NSOs. This aim will be achieved by bringing together project teams of interested NSOs who will simultaneously start to work on the issue of recognition in their own NSO in order to#identify:# • How can you help your volunteers in recognising their own competencies developed both within and outside Scouting? • How can you help them to make those competencies visible to the outside world • How can we see Scouting help the individual in their development, also outside Scouting? 2 years (April 2011 – April 2013) EUR 42,633 EUR 17,225

During the process, we were able to define and share goals for each partner organisation. All participating partner organisations gained information about the general field of recognition of non-formal learning, the tools available on European level and the specific status of each organization, though it was not possible to develop or define a common language for the practice of recognition of non-formal learning inside and outside Scouting and Guiding. Although the participants shared and 'borrowed' ideas from each other, each organisation is bound to develop tailor-made tools for their own organisation. For similar reasons we were also not able to develop an Internet based learning environment. But we constructed a website for sharing ideas and documents. It became very clear that taking responsibility for ones own learning- and developmental process is something that does not come naturally in every culture or in the recognition of non-formal learning. By bringing project teams of different European NSOs and MOs together, we were able to exchange and learn from each other’s experiences, methods and approaches. An important part in this is the shared awareness that non-formal learning experiences in Scouting and Guiding are a valuable tool in the development of young European citizens. This means that even without formal recognition in terms of diploma's, Scouts and Guides have a lot of valuable competences to offer which are best developed by empowering them to take charge of their own lives rather than demonstrating and showing. To enhance the cultural diversity of approaches and methods in this project, we choose a different venue for each meeting.

The aim of the project is to aid the growth of the Scout movement in the Faroe Islands. This is done by renewing the programme materials, merit badges and award badges for scouts in all age groups, but primarily the age group 11-17 years. The lack of programme materials has been a major hindrance in the growth and development of the movement and with a new and up-to-date programme material there is no doubt that the movement will grow considerably. The development of the new programme material started three years ago and is now in the final stage, where the design and production of the badges, handbooks and posters is to take place. 1 year (March 12 – March 2013 – delayed) EUR 53,800 EUR 6,000

Project Duration Total Project Costs Grant Awarded

Progress: • Problems encountered in the recruitment of erective workers to support the process. Realignment was required. Some inconsistencies in implementation of the plan due to lacy of communication between the different levels. However, we found several strong points in our development strategy of innovative actions, training volunteers, appropriate and ambitious volunteers and motivated employees in the implementation of the development of international meetings (meeting with Belgian Scouts, participation and facilitation of training in the Scout Academy, meeting with Henrik Söderman) during which we were able to verify the quality of our development plan. • Revise our growth strategy by strengthening both axes: improving cross work between the three levels of the association (local, regional and national) and support of our volunteers. • Improved CADO (Charters Action Operational Development). This tool is a chart that traces requests from the regional to the national level, building the action programme. • Local assessment tool developed to help with where to give assistance and innovative ideas. This tool allows us to strengthen the good work cross and develop our service to members. • Implement training for adult leaders, hands-on training to develop knowledge. • Two new working groups - first is a group of development work, the second on adult policy of our association - based on five areas: recruitment, training, retention, promotion and support.

The project’s main goal is to increase the number of participants in the Hebrew Scouts movement. In recent years the number was rose significantly, each year by about 5%, to the current total of approximately 60,000, but this growth stopped in 2012; this year saw a 3% decrease.

This year it will be decided which is the country’s largest youth movement, and the Ministry of Education budget for the next 5 years will be distributed based on these findings. Thus the future of the Hebrew Scouts movement depends on the census results and the better the results, the more the movement activities can continue developing. The project will support all five Associations in the federation in Israel and spearhead a joint strategy of growth for them all, with professional training and supervision also done collectively. 1 year (June 2012 – March 2013) EUR 103,500 EUR 15,000
