RJ Module Addition
« on: 23 May 2016, 09:29:29 AM »
Consultations for the new Rover Journey is open to the Rover Community!

We hope that through utilising this forum, Rovers will be able to question and feedback on every aspect of the Rover Journey to make the progress scheme more comprehensible and holistic.

Do use this thread to propose new modules which you would like to see in the Rover Journey.

Do consider the module guidelines as prescribed in the Rover Journey paper.

Do mention the following in your post:

1. Module Domain (Fellowship, Open Air, Service and Citizenship, Rovering to Success, Back to Scouting)
2. General Description of module
3. Proposed Miles accreditation

This public consultation will last until 16th June 2016. We're looking forward to a meaningful discussion with everyone!

Yours-in-Rovering,
Muhd Haziq

Hi!

Thank you for your feedback, we will take the new modules into consideration and add them accordingly if deemed fit. Just a quick question, for the challenge course practitioner/specialist, is it only done by OBS? Or are there any other camp companies that issue their own set of challenge course certification? If such companies do, should we then recognise all these certifications under the same module?

Currently, only OBS runs the CCI courses, while Pivotal Learning is the only company currently available in Singapore that conducts ACCT courses. As ACCT courses are of an international standard, people presenting certifications that are conducted by companies or organisations overseas should be made recognised too.
