Courses Available in Quebec Council
Wood Badge 1 Courses - All
The Basic Wood Badge 1 course is designed to develop the skills, knowledge and confidence of leaders to assist them in providing an effective quality program to the youth. It is mandatory that all section Scouters take this training in their first 90 days. Course content is set by Scouts Canada National Council and is designed to teach leaders the skills required to work with youth and to administer a section. The only prerequisite is a desire to learn.
We have 3 ways to obtain the basic training:
- Traditional in person
- Hybrid in person
Wood Badge II All Sections
At the completion of a section Wood Badge Part II, the leader/advisor will have the advanced skills necessary to plan and run a youth program in compliance with Scouts Canada’s Program Standards and By-Laws Policies and Procedures. The emphasis will be on long term program planning, outdoor activities and team development.
This course is being redeveloped to include Canadian path and to make it more relavant. It will not be offered in the 2016-17 season.
Wood Badge 1 - Hybrid
Blended courses, also known as hybrid courses, are learning opportunities where a portion of the traditional face-to-face (F2F) instructional time is replaced by web-based online learning. Facilitated learning is a process of helping people to explore, learn and change.
Non woodbadge courses that will help Scouters with specific skills in Scouting.
Wood Badge II for The Canadian Path
Wood Badge II has been revitalized to incorporate Canadian Path methodology, making it more relevant for today’s Scouters. The new Wood Badge II program allows for self-directed learning, conducted through mentorship and coaching in addition to traditional courses and workshops. The revitalized Wood Badge II framework uses new resources called Scouter Development Cards which can be used to help Volunteers build personal learning plans. To access the program, simply download the Wood Badge II Guide.
Support Scouters have a pivotal role in facilitating Wood Badge II for Section Scouters. The Wood Badge II — Support Scouter Guide explains how Support Scouters can help facilitate Wood Badge II through courses and workshops, coaching and mentoring, and self-directed learning.
